The harder you work, the more you can make. We offer lucrative opportunities through competitive commission rates, bonuses and travel incentives.
Farm Bureau has one of the best multiline exclusive agent contracts in the industry; you'll earn commission on the property-casualty, life insurance and financial services products you sell. Plus, you'll get residuals from past sales and can earn cash awards from sales campaigns. The more you sell, the more you'll earn.
On average, a first-year Farm Bureau agent makes 49% more than other insurance agents.1

Agents who meet annual goals earn travel incentives that allow them (and their families) to explore the world with other top agents and company leadership. Some of our recent destinations include Hawaii, Ireland, England and Alaska.
Farm Bureau agents are business-owners. That means you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to make the decisions that work for you and your community.
As your own boss, you’re in control. You won’t be tied to a desk or an office all day. You can grow your business the way you want to, hiring the people you want to work with and creating processes that work for you.
One of the biggest benefits our agents experience is the ability to plan their work around their lives. Whether that means coaching the local high school sports team or attending every concert and recital your child performs in, your schedule is your own.
While you’re in business for yourself, you’re never by yourself. You’ll have all of Farm Bureau backing you up – district managers, trainers, underwriters, marketing support, coaches, compliance and legal guidance – along with a history of meeting our promises that stretches over 80 years.
Your clients won’t just be a name on a policy, they’ll be people you helped prepare for the future. And you’ll be there with them through thick and thin.
Farm Bureau agents are there for their clients on their worst days. Whether that’s an auto accident, a storm event or the loss of a family member, our clients rely on their agent to help them through.
As a multi-line agent with a full financial services company behind you, you’ll have the tools to find the right fit for each and every one of your clients at different stages of their lives. From insuring homes and vehicles to financially preparing for retirement and college, you can help.
Our agents are connectors and leaders. From providing recommendations to help clients build their advisory teams to sponsoring local events to being there with sleeves rolled up, you’ll be right in the thick of things.
We’re looking for people with drive, determination and discipline, people who are willing to put in the work to be a business-owner. Because insurance is an ever-changing industry, we’re looking for lifelong learners who are passionate about helping their community members, people who have the communication skills to spend their days building relationships with clients and getting to the heart of what those clients need.
No insurance experience? No problem! Our onboarding and training process was created to ensure you get the foundation you need to be successful.
