Common questions about salaries for an Insurance Broker

How do insurance brokers make money?

Insurance brokers are paid a commission and fees by the insurance companies whose policies they sell to individuals or businesses. The level of commission is usually regulated by the state, and it can vary greatly depending on your location. Policies that last for more than a year will often earn a broker a smaller residual payment for the rest of the duration of the policy.
