Are you interested in working with us?
Choice Mutual is the largest online independent final expense agency in the USA. We changed the way consumers shop for final expense insurance.
Historically, final expense insurance has been sold knee to knee in a customer’s home. That is changing, and we’re leading the charge.
Every year, we sell thousands of policies without ever meeting a client in person because we operate entirely over the phone and the internet.
Sales agent position requirements
Agent positions don’t become available often, and when they do, they are filled quickly.
To work at Choice Mutual, you must meet all of the following requirements:
- Report to our local office every day in Reno, NV (we do not hire remote agents under any circumstance).

What are the most common reasons why an agent could not get contracted with your carriers?
Every carrier is unique regarding why they may not accept an agent for contracting. That said, here is a list of the most common reasons why agents may get rejected in the contracting process (there maybe others).
Some of these issues can be overcome. However, some are hard stop declines.

Is there a base salary, or is it commission only?
We offer a base salary plus a performance bonus. Agents are not paid commission only like most final expense insurance sales positions. Our philosophy is to ensure each client receives truly impartial advice from our agents.
Once a consumer deals with us, they should not be able to get a better deal elsewhere. This is good business because it follows the golden rule. Plus, it also leads to very few cancellations because a client got a better policy somewhere else.
Having agents on a salary ensures they never have to choose between making money and doing what’s suitable for the customer.
How does the performance bonus work?
If you meet particular production and quality of business goals, you’ll get a bonus paid out at the end of the month.
Can agents increase their pay?
Yes. Quality production over time will yield better compensation.
Are there advancement opportunities such as sales management?
Can I work from home one or two days per week?
Do you provide E&O insurance?
No. You will need to maintain your own E&O insurance.
I’m not licensed, but I want to work with your company. Do you ever help agents get licensed?
At this time, we do not.
Are agents paid directly by the carriers?
No. All commissions are paid to Choice Mutual. You will get a W2 paycheck via direct deposit from Choice Mutual on a bi-weekly basis.
Do you have a non-compete?
No. If you leave and still want to be in the insurance business, we won’t stand in your way.
Do agents have to sign a nondisclosure agreement?
Absolutely. As a Choice Mutual agent, you’ll have access to propriety information and processes. There is a long list of organizations that would love to have access to this data. We’ve invested years of hard work and large sums of money to get to where we are today.
We are going to protect our investment.
Do you have an open release policy?
Can we still represent carriers other than the ones you use?
No. We are a captive independent agency. We are independent in the sense that we utilize multiple insurance carriers for our clients.
However, as an agency, we are captive. To work with us, you’ll need to drop appointments with any carrier outside of the ones we contract with (doing so won’t mean you lose your renewals with them).
Remember, we are providing you with new high-quality leads every week, infrastructure, and systems to allow you to make sales each week consistently. All of that comes at no cost to you. That’s why we expect all business written to be with our carriers.
What does the training process entail?
It starts with one week of classroom-style training. You’ll learn how to use our CRM, underwriting, process applications with each carrier, and much more.
The second week you’ll spend the entire time just listening to a successful agent make phone calls.
In the third and fourth week, you will be on the phone working on new leads with a coach listening to help you along the way.
Do agents choose which type of leads they will be calling?
No. We decide that.
In which states will we be working?
All 50 states plus DC. Actually, make it 49. Alaska never generates leads. Maybe it’s too cold to have a funeral there, which is why they don’t need final expense insurance. Who knows.
Do agents need to buy all the necessary non-resident licenses?
We will help you initially acquire them on our dime. However, you’ll be responsible for keeping them renewed. Most states require a license renewal every two years.
