Broker FAQs

How much are commissions?

Commissions are 10% for both new and renewal policies sold through your unique writing link. Any policies sold outside of the unique writing link assigned will not be paid commissions. Your commissions will be paid monthly and are separate from any commissions and reporting received from EyeMed group business. We are unable to combine EyeMed Individual and EyeMed group commissions.

Is there a fee to get appointed?

Yes. Administrative fees are $25 for your resident state and $20 for each non-resident state.

What if I’m already appointed with EyeMed to sell group business?

Thank you for your business! You already know the value of EyeMed and we’re glad you’re with us. Our EyeMed group and EyeMed Individual operations are maintained separately, including agent appointments. So please proceed to complete the forms to get appointed for EyeMed Individual and we’ll be pleased to welcome you and your customers to great individual vision plans.

How quickly can I get appointed?

After correct forms are completed and submitted, you will generally receive confirmation and your unique writing link in ten days or less.

What are my options to get customers enrolled with EyeMed Individual?

Once you have a unique writing link, all of your customers must be enrolled through this link in order for you to receive credit. Customers may access your link from your website, from an email sent by you, through social media posted by you, or any other electronic means.

Can customers choose an effective date?

Yes. Customers may choose from three future effective date options, always on the first of a month. Enrollments completed on or before the 20th of each month may become effective on the first of the following month at the earliest. Enrollments completed after the 20th of each month may become effective on the first of the next full month at the earliest. For example, a customer who enrolls on the 18th of October can choose to become effective on November 1, December 1, or January 1. A customer who enrolls on the 23rd of October can choose to become effective on December 1, January 1, or February 1.

Can I sell to customers residing in my resident state and other states (non-resident states)?

Your writing link will function for your resident state and any other non-resident state where you are appointed with us. If a customer attempts to use your link for states where you are not appointed, they will be unable to receive a quote or enroll.
