- Can I buy insurance directly from an insurer?
You can buy many life insurance and property-casualty insurance products directly from an insurer without help from any intermediary, i.e brokers or agents. Typically potential policyholders will be contacted by mail, or they can telephone or send email to apply for a product. The advantage of this type of distribution system is that expenses are usually much lower because there are no commissions to be paid. These savings can be passed onto the consumer through lower premiums. The main disadvantage is that the policyholder does not receive as much, or sometimes any, personal service either when buying a product or filing a claim.
