Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve Never Been In Sales Before; Can I Really Make A Good Income?

Absolutely! Some of our top income earners come from a completely unrelated field. We often see this as an advantage since we train you from the ground up. Some of the top six figure income earners each year with Family Heritage Life (FHL) are people in their first year with the company and 1 in 8 full-time career agents earn a six figure income!

Your income will be the direct reflection of two things: 1. Your work effort. 2 Your ability to apply the Bluegrass Heritage Insurance Group (BHIG) system. If you have confidence in those two things both BHIG and FHL will provide you the opportunity and support to reach your income goals.

Do I Have To Have Sales or Insurance Experience?

No. The characteristics that define success in this business and any type of sales is the willingness to work hard, study hard, be coachable/teachable, be a self-starter and to be self-disciplined. In addition, we offer a great training program for our sales professionals!

Is It Commission Only & How Much Will I Be Paid?

The great thing about BHIG is that we offer 2 different compensation options: Advanced Commission with Bonuses or Base Pay with Commission Sharing and Bonuses. Our sales and management professions take advantage of the fact that there is no limit to the amount they can earn. In addition, there is an award winning cash and incentive program available to you. Put simply, the more you work, the more you will get paid!

When Do I Receive My First Paycheck & Do I have to Sell?

We pay every week based on successfully processed business. Your first paycheck is the week following your first sales week where business is generated for Advanced Commission or the 2nd week for Base Pay. The simple policy underwriting allows us to pay so quickly.

Do You Offer Paid Benefits?

BHIG and FHL offers incentives to help offset much of those costs. But, because we are considered independent contractors, we meet our insurance needs like any other business owner. Because of this, we can choose what is best for our own personal and family situation

What Does It Mean to Be Fully Vested with FHL?

FHL vesting in your personal and team renewals is as follows: 50% at 2 years, 60% at 3 years, 70% at 4 years and 100% at 5 years. If you were to leave FHL after those time periods, you will continue to receive your commissions. Should something happen to you, your vested commission will go to whomever you designate.

Vesting could occur earlier on the renewals due to permanent disability, age 65 or death.

How Will I Market The Products?

We market our products in 5 ways: Residential, Business-to-Business, through State and Local Governments, through School Systems and through Referrals. Our goal to sit down with 30 decision makers each week. We have found the personal touch works best. Meeting people face-to-face is simple challenging and more enjoyable for those that work well with people.

While many companies might use other methods, such as telemarketing, junk mail, buying mass-produced leads, or depending on family and friends… we have discovered these tactics to be too frustrating, expensive and increasing ineffective. Your income and therefore your success do not rely on any factors outside of your control.

Although we may be a little old-fashioned, we understand that long-term success in sales is built on trust. Nothing builds trust with clients better than personal contact with a sincere, confident, well-connected sales professional. That’s why we have made training the cornerstone of our company. We don’t just throw you out there. We give you classroom and personal coaching. We teach you how to start a business from scratch, show you how to know the name of every person before you approach them and develop a community into a warm market with a huge base of referrals.

Where Will I Be Working?

This often depend on where you live, but we generally don’t expect people to travel more than an hour from home (about a 2-3 county radius). While territories are open, BHIG works closely with the rest of the team to avoid any overlap; however, you may write business wherever you are licensed.

How Much Travel Is Involved?

This is a local career. Most of your time will be spent working in your territory. As part of the training process, BHIG and FHL offers several training weeks and days per year where you have the chance to work with and learn from some of the best in both BHIG and FHL. There is also travel to convention destinations that are made available to you and your family. These are destination like New York City, Miami, Cancun, San Diego, Denver, etc.

Where Is the Office & How Often Do I Have To Go To It?

Our main agency office is located in Lawrenceburg, KY. This is a local career; therefore, most of our sales professionals work within a 2-3 county radius of where they live. They DO NOT have to drive to the office on a daily bases.

What Kind of Hours Will I Work & When Do I Have To Work?

First, you must realize this is a full-time career opportunity. To be successful, a sales professional should commit to between 40 and 50 hours a week in the field. This is especially important during the first 3 months. The business, government and school market tends to be more of a daytime market. The residential market is geared more toward the evening. We will customize a plan for you depending on your skills and goals. Also, our sales professionals do not work set hours and choose which hours they wish to work.

When Can I Get Into Management?

We are a company where people with leadership qualities thrive. There is no required time limit before you can being leading and managing people. While our sales professional make a very lucrative income, training and managing people adds significantly to your income opportunity.

The first level of management is called a Team Leader and as a person starts to train, he or she is promoted. The 2nd level is called a Regional Director, the 3rd level is called a Senior Marketing Director and the 4th level is called a Sales Director. Once a person is promoted to Sales Director, he or she can choose to break off from BHIG and form his or her own agency! We DO NOT hold our people back!

Do I Have To Get An Insurance License?

If you are selected for a position, we will walk you through the licensing process prior to you attending our classroom sales training, FHL Sales Academy (SA). The initial licensing costs are your responsibility; however, both FHL and BHIG offer incentives were you can be refunded these costs. That means you could get YOUR LICENSE for free!
