How does AmTrust help our workers’ comp agents succeed?

To be successful in your career, you need to ensure you are helping businesses get the coverage they need. That means you need to understand the various laws, class codes and underwriting involved with workers’ comp. Many businesses are required by law to carry a workers’ compensation policy, and while nearly half of the states have state-run agencies, they are often considered insurers of last resort and businesses may opt to get coverage from private insurers, too.

As an AmTrust agent, you’ll help your client with ongoing services including evidence of coverage and any changes to policy coverage, and provide advice about adhering to workers’ comp laws. In the event of claim, you’ll be there to help guide them through the process; our online system makes it easy to work with policyholders. Plus, we continually provide our agents with thought leadership, best practices, tools and industry information through both email communication and our insurance agent blog.

How does AmTrust keep their promise to focus on small businesses?

Our policyholders are the businesses you'll find when you walk down any Main Street.

Our extensive network, unparalleled experience, and strong reputation serving small businesses gives you a competitive advantage when it comes to providing the right workers' compensation coverage.

We understand that while many employers need to carry workers’ comp coverage to comply with the law, they also want to want to help an injured employee cover any costs for medical care and lost wages until the employee is able to return to work. It’s about both protecting a policyholder’s business and their employees. Because we handle our insureds concerns about claims, loss control resources, auditing and other issues, you can help potential policyholders rest assured that AmTrust workers' compensation coverage will always put their needs first.

We also work to keep both our agents and policyholders up to date on the latest industry data and research, including tips on avoiding common workplace injuries and the an overview of the workers’ compensation insurance industry outlook.

A Focus on Small Business

What are AmTrust’s preferred workers’ compensation insurance class codes?

AmTrust maintains a broad appetite when it comes to class codes, which makes marketing our workers' compensation coverage even easier for our agents. We currently underwrite over 350 class codes, which makes us an ideal fit for a vast number of small businesses. For agents, that means finding new policyholders and earning commissions is easy. While not all-inclusive, our workers' compensation coverage is particularly well-suited for the following classes:

  • Artisan contractors
  • Beauty shops
  • Buildings - operations by owners or contractors
  • Doctors & Dentists
  • Hotels
  • Machine shops - Light metalworking
  • Private schools
  • Professional offices
  • Restaurants
  • Retail stores
  • Wholesale stores
On the other hand, we generally avoid industries that have an especially high risk of injury, such as farming, nursing homes, fast food delivery, and heavy construction. Focusing on a wide variety of low-risk businesses is in the interests of our agents, our policyholders, and AmTrust as a whole. This approach allows us to keep our prices competitive for those we insure, while supporting the agents who support us by helping them secure commissions. For our preferred classes, we strive to provide a policy that is priced in such a way that both the policyholders and our agents are satisfied.
