Do I need to have a company set up to become an agent?
Yes. We require all of our independent agents to have an active LLC or Corporation with state registration and a Federal ID number. If the agent is doing business in a state other than where they originally filed for their Corporation or LLC, they will also need to be registered as a foreign Corporation or LLC in the state in which they will do business.
