As a PIA member you can choose from several high-quality, competitively priced insurance plans to help protect you, your employees and families. You can customize your protection to best meet your family's insurance needs. Your employees may apply for all of the following plans without your participation, except for Basic Life.

Term Life Insurance Program
Mortgage payments, education, health care and daily living expenses continue for your family if something happens to you. Help protect their financial future with $50,000 Basic Life Insurance available to Agency Owners/Managers and up to $30,000 for their employees. This Basic Life coverage is only available if there is 100% participation of eligible employees and the employer contributes 100% of the premium. There is no medical underwriting. Additional term life insurance up to $300,000 is available through the Voluntary Life Insurance Program (medically underwritten). If you have Basic or Voluntary Life, Dependent Term Life Insurance is also available with up to $100,000 for spouses (medically underwritten) and $10,000 for children (ages 6 months to 19 years) and $500 for children (age 14 days to 6 months). Children are not medically underwritten.

Insurance technology provider Vertafore recently released results of a survey it conducted that found young agents value flexibility and career growth opportunities more than technology when it comes to job satisfaction.

The survey looked at responses from 414 executives throughout the insurance industry – with 166 (40 percent) of respondents under the age of 40 – to determine how technology is shaping the younger generation's decision to enter and stay in the insurance industry.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau's (NICB's) "Hot Wheels" list of the top 10 most stolen cars in 2013 found the Honda Accord was the most stolen vehicle, but the report also found that a majority of the 53,000 stolen Accords were built in the 1990s. Cars that were eight years or older dominated the list of most stolen cars, and very few recent vehicles made the list. Moreover, the overall rate of auto theft has declined, and some contend that is tied to advancements in anti-theft technology, such as an immobilizer that prevents cars from starting unless the driver uses a key that is recognized by the computer network.

Please join us for our first PIA Charity Golf Outing to benefit Special Olympics Minnesota. Thank you to Event Sponsors SFM The Work Comp Experts and Western National Insurance Group for helping make this event possible! Though we can’t make any promises when it comes to the weather, we CAN promise that you will: golf on an excellent course; have fun golfing with your industry colleagues; have a chance to win prizes and awards suited to all skill levels; and enjoy participating in some fun contests to raise money for a worthy cause! If you golf, you know that The Wilds in Prior Lake is probably one of the top ten courses in the state. We will have a shotgun start and you will play your own ball (or someone else’s, if you are like me and that is all you can find).  We are there to have fun and this is an event to raise money for the Young Athletes Program of Special Olympics Minnesota, so bring some cash to buy your Mulligans and participate in the Putting Contest, Break the Windshield and EVERYONE that plays is eligible for the Hole-In-One contest sponsored by North Star Companies. Ace the designated hole and you can win a 7-day, all-inclusive, first-class vacation at the Moon Palace Golf Resort and Spa in Cancun, Mexico. Enjoy your week-long stay in a Junior Golf Suite in an adult-only area on one of the two signature Jack Nicklaus courses. Did we mention that it’s first-class? Yes, that means first-class, round trip, non-stop airfare for two with private, non-stop transfers from and to the airport. Cancun not your thing? Take the $10,000 gift certificate and plan your own luxury vacation to any Delta Vacations destination! We are well on our way to filling up this event, so if you want to join your fellow agents and company representatives, send in your registration TODAY!  Register for Golf Outing.
