Erie Insurance began as a Pennsylvania auto insurer selling insurance through independent agents. Since then, we’ve grown our portfolio to include home, business and life insurance, and expanded into 12 states. All the while, we’ve remained true to the independent agents who represent us. We only sell insurance through our agents, who have helped drive our success for more than 90 years.
You’ll be backed by a company with nine decades of experience and an extremely engaged team ready to help you succeed. Read more about our company’s history.
You could represent an insurance company that is highly rated in customer satisfaction and business performance. Learn more about our recent awards.
Each year, we honor more than a dozen agents for their outstanding community service efforts and donate to their favorite charities.

The ERIE-Agent Relationship
What we need
A good insurance agent knows more than how to sell an insurance policy. Our agents have a customer-first focus. That means they understand their customers’ needs and potential risks, and take the time to explain the coverage options.
As an ERIE Agent, you’ll also manage your own business, meet sales goals and provide quality customer service. Keep in mind that you’ll need current insurance licenses (if you don’t already have them) and a detailed business plan.
You have excellent communication and relationship skills. You know how to present information effectively and influence others. You’re a natural problem solver.
You’re enthusiastic, determined and innovative. You’re always looking for ways to help your customers and grow your business. You’re well suited for sales and management.
You’re an entrepreneur or aspiring to be one. You’re willing to broaden your knowledge of business and the insurance industry through ongoing professional education and training.
Starting the agency from scratch was challenging, but with ERIE’s support, I grew my book of business within a few years and have earned several prestigious sales awards and incentive trips.
