Nationwide Expands Use of Agent Co-Op
Nationwide Insurance has announced an expansion in how independent agents can use co-op dollars.
“Now, qualifying agents who partner with Nationwide are able to use co-op dollars to market to recruits, participate in training programs or pursue industry certifications,” Nationwide said in a press release, adding that agents can also use co-op dollars for membership and conference fees with PIA.
“These are just a few of the new market-leading enhancements we’re making to our co-op program to help our independent agent partners win in the market place, based on their unique needs,” said Shelley Brazeau Temple, president of P&C personal lines at Nationwide. The company announced in 2018 that Nationwide agents will be transitioning into the independent agency insurance distribution system by July 1, 2020.
