6 STEP TRAINING PROGRAM FOR NEW AGENTS

STEP 1: CONTRACTING

Complete the 3 TASKS below to have your contracting documents submitted to the carriers, full access to the Equis Agent Dashboard, and access to the Equis Lead System.

1. Contracting Packet / Carrier Contracting Profile

  • You will be receiving an email from Equis Financial with your “Carrier Contracting Packet” attached.

  • Please read the section below "Documents for your Contracting Profile"

  • After completion let your manager know you are finished with this step ​

2. Surancebay Emails

  • Surance bay is the online system we use to transmit your contracting info to each carrier.

  • CLICK HERE to download the Carrier Contracting Check List.

  • Text this document to your manager when surancebays emails are complete.

  • After your contracting packet is approved, you will receive an email through surancebay to confirm each carrier contract. You must open and confirm each email.

3. GPM Contracting

  • The GPM contracting link will come from the equis office 2-3 days after you receive the surancebay emails.

  • You must fill out and submit the contract for it to be processed.

  • GPM can take up to three weeks to send you a writing number.

  • GPM requires you to have a writing number before you can write your first application.

4. Request Access to Equis Lead system (OPT)

  • Opt is the software program used by Equis to manage our lead program.

  • After you have completed the Surancebay emails you should request access to opt.

  • After you have received the "Verified" email from Equis, you are ready to start buying leads.

TIP - Start Selling Now!

  • You can start writing business as soon as you complete the Surancebay emails referenced above.

  • You do NOT need writing numbers from the carriers to submit business in most states.

  • Review the pre-appointment states with your manager.

Documents for your Contracting Profile

  • Copy of your insurance license

  • Copy of your drivers license

  • Voided Check

  • REG-ED Anti Money Laundering (AML) certificate.

  • Equis Financial requires anti money laundering. We must have the Reg Ed AML only, no other AML will be accepted even if obtained recently. This is a free course for you, to get this deal, you must use this link.

  • https://secure.reged.com/login/vu/VirtualUniversity/EQUIS

  • Select OPT out of CE credits option, this AML course cannot be applied towards CE credits. Upon completing the course take a screenshot and upload to your contracting Profile.

  • Error and Omissions Insurance (E&O)

  • This insurance helps to protect against claims arising from the sale and servicing of insurance products. E&O is not required to contract with most of our carriers but is highly recommended.

  • We recommend using the NAPA, National Association of Professional Agents. You can access their information HERE and clicking on the Life & Health Agent E&O button.

  • Reminder: For any of the annuity carriers your E&O also needs additional coverage for fixed/indexed annuities.
