Why Independent Insurance Agents?

We sell our policies solely through a network of independent agents. You’ll have an insurance professional by your side who can make sure you get the coverage you need and never pay more than you should.

Do independent agents cost more?

No, working with an ERIE independent agent doesn’t cost you more money or increase the amount you pay for insurance. ERIE only sells through licensed independent insurance agents who are also committed to our culture of service. You’ll find our rates to be competitive, and often better than competitors, because ERIE doesn’t spend millions on advertising. We keep costs low and gain business by word of mouth while focusing on customer satisfaction and protection. Just ask our customers—they stay with us year after year. We have a 90% customer retention rate, and every ERIE policy comes with a real person to help guide you through your journey.

Independent agents can help you save money and time

Independent agents can represent multiple insurance carriers so they can help you find the right insurance coverage for your needs, possibly even saving you money. Not only will they compare price, but they understand what the best value is by comparing service and coverages.

Insurance agents add value and support local

Working with an ERIE agent adds value to your insurance experience and means you are supporting a local business. Local insurance agents are familiar with the types of coverages in your area, enabling them to share advice on what policy fits your needs. From breaking down complex insurance language to answering all of your insurance questions, an insurance agent can help you virtually or in person to make sure you and your family are protected. If you have a question about your policy or claim, you’ll have a knowledgeable, local agent to call who can offer personalized guidance because they live and work in your community.

Where to find an independent agent

We think you’ll see the advantages of working with an independent ERIE agent. ERIE agents understand their customers’ needs and take the time to explain the coverage options. They’ll even make sure you stay covered as your family or life changes.
