FBFS’s History of Success

FBFS has been protecting livelihoods and futures for over 80 years. Why have we been successful for so long? First, we deliver on our promises, being there from the beginning to help our client/members when they need us. But we’re not just about innovative insurance products and a long history of financial stability. We are about you — your family, your home and your livelihood. We care about making sure you have a bright future.

Excellent Earning Potential

At Farm Bureau Financial Services, agents make additional commission based on their sales of products such as life insurance and mutual funds. FBFS’s full lifecycle of product offerings allows for agents to maximize their revenue. There is no ceiling on your earning potential when you’re an FBFS agent.

Plus, FBFS agents don’t have to worry about franchising fees to open their own office. Upfront costs such as state licensing exams and office set-up are minimal compared to other business opportunities. In fact, FBFS offers additional compensation during the first few years as an agent while you’re getting your feet under you, and you have additional bonus opportunities for meeting sales goals in the first year. We want you to succeed, and that’s why we offer as much assistance as possible.

Industry-Leading Training

Our Developing Agent Program allows new agents to begin building their insurance business without leaving their current job. Participants sell auto, home and life insurance policies while learning what it takes to be a successful full-time FBFS insurance agent. Once potential agents complete the Developing Agent Program and determine the FBFS insurance agent opportunity is right for them, the training and education opportunities continue. We have Agent Academies located at our main campus, online learning opportunities and Field Training consultants to ensure that agents always have access to continued learning opportunities.
