Benefits of Being an LWCC Agent Partner

WRITTEN BY

GOALS OF THIS GUIDE

Are you a new Louisiana commercial insurance agency looking for workers' compensation companies to contract? Or even a veteran agent who is not currently working with us? Here are a few benefits you can count on if you choose to work with LWCC.

You’re our first partner in the Louisiana Loyal movement

We are Louisiana Loyal, always, and our promise is to help you and Louisiana thrive. Since our opening in 1992, we have served as a Champion of Louisiana promoting safety, security, and stability for the state economy. We work solely with agent partners to offer workers' compensation insurance for the Louisiana business owners that create value in our great state.

You’re partnering with the #1 workers' compensation company in the state

Of the 90+ insurance companies writing workers' comp, LWCC has the most market share with 26% of premium and 20,000 active policyholders. We are rated A (Excellent) by AM Best and have consistently been designated as a Ward’s 50 Top Performing company, an independent award given to the top performing property and casualty insurance companies in the country.  

We achieve and hold this position by having dedicated underwriting teams assigned for each agency and business segments. This helps to ensure you can build strong relationships and have consistency in our partnership to write and service your policyholders.

We’ll build confidence in your recommendation for your clients to choose LWCC

We understand their workers’ compensation insurance decision is determined based on their needs and your professional guidance. That’s why we’ll work hard to deliver on the value that we offer and give you peace of mind that your client is with the right company. We are a true partner in safety and offer a wide suite of safety services to help your clients be confident in their operations to prevent or mitigate injuries, but if they do happen, we also have a truly professional and seasoned claims team to respond. We offer free on-site or virtual training on safety culture and specific topics for your client’s operations, but also training on being prepared and how to respond when an on-job injury does occur. From policy servicing to helping injured employees recover and return to work, we’re here.

We offer progressive commission and profit sharing for qualifying agents

The more business you place with us, the more you earn. Through our tiered commission program LWCC agents can earn more compensation as our relationship grows. So not only is a long-term relationship with LWCC great for your policyholders, but you are also able to participate in a competitive compensation program that rewards your agency for our mutual success.

We are dedicated to providing the best experience, for agents and policyholders

LWCC employees live by the core values of:

  • Innovation – Everything changes, and so must we. We have the drive to explore new things and together we will seek old things in new ways. We will continually renew and adapt.
  • Learning – Learning never stops. It is the way we stay engaged and at the top of our game and our industry.
  • Will – We have the will to create unparalleled experiences for each other and our customers, do extraordinary things and achieve extraordinary goals.
  • Connections – We want to connect with each other up, down and across the organization so we can have real and deep connections with our customers and our community.
  • Caring & Commitment – We care about each other, our agents, our policyholders, our injured workers and our state, and we are committed to doing the right things, for the right reasons, at the right time.

Through our Voice of the Customer program, we are constantly looking for new ways to be a better partner. Our agents receive a relationship survey from us regularly to share your thoughts, feelings, and expectations on our working relationship and are regularly included in project planning to ensure changes we make benefit our customers. We strive for greatness for you.

We are a mutual nonprofit company

As a mutual nonprofit insurer, our policyholders are the owners and can share the company’s success. While not guaranteed, LWCC has been able to distribute dividends to policyholders each year since 2003. Since inception, LWCC has been able to return over $1 billion back to policyholders to reinvest in their business or community. If you’d like to learn more about our dividend program and the economic impact for Louisiana, visit our Dividend Program informational page.
