NU Online News Service, Feb. 18, 12:28 p.m. – Two Web-based insurance wholesalers based in Texas are teaming up to help independent property-casualty insurance agents sell employee benefits products.

AgentSecure, a unit of InsureZone Inc., Fort Worth, Texas, says its online agent application will also serve as an online application for BenefitMall Inc., Dallas.

AgentSecure distributes business owners’ policies, workers’ compensation coverage and other small commercial policies through p-c agents.

BenefitMall distributes group health insurance, group life insurance and other benefits products through agents and brokers of all kinds.

AgentSecure says its new relationship with BenefitMall should help small p-c agencies sell more benefits products to their commercial clients.

AgentSecure agents who sell the BenefitMall products will get the same commissions from carriers that they would earn if they had direct appointments with the carriers, AgentSecure notes.
