Become Our Agent
The job of a general insurance agent is to act on behalf of a general insurance company to acquire insurance business from the customers or prospective customers of the insurance company.
Insurance agents can act on behalf of not more than two general insurance companies at a time. To be a general insurance agent, one must sit for and pass the Pre-Contract Examination for Insurance Agents (PCEIA), Part A & Part B. The examination is conducted by The Malaysian Insurance Institute (MII). The PCEIA assures that any person who becomes an insurance agent has the necessary basic knowledge to promote and sell insurance to the general public on behalf of the insurance company which they represent.
After passing this examination, the general agent will have to register himself/herself with the Persatuan Insurans Am Malaysia (PIAM) before he/she can transact any insurance business. Upon registration by PIAM, general insurance agents are required to comply with a set of rules known as the General Insurance Agents Registration Regulations (GIARR) and a code of ethics for general insurance agents.
An insurance agency can be operated either on a part-time basis or on a full-time basis. However, in today's highly competitive environment, more and more agents have become professionals who operate their agency business on a full-time basis. This enables them to concentrate on the business and provide the best services to their customers. Traditionally, insurance agents are paid by the insurance companies they work for by way of commissions on sales.
You must possess a minimum SPM/O Level or higher qualification.
