Direct Bill Commission Cycle

Below is a quick run down of our commission cycle for direct bill policies:

Our office will issue commission checks approximately 5 weeks after the commission period closes (the close of the month which the commission was bound in).  AWIS will receive carrier commission statements spanning the month following the close of the period (anywhere from the 5th to the 30th depending on the carrier).  Then after posting all commission statements during this time period, AWIS will subsequently issue commission checks to go out by the 7th of the following month.

AWIS works to remit the commission checks to our retail agents as soon as possible and the commission cycle is on a very timely schedule.  The most common lags which occur in the commission cycle are due to the insured making late payment to the carrier after their commission period has already closed.

Please see the example below for the current month:

Direct bill commissions bound in July 2010 will be issued by September 7, 2010 to retail agents.  There is a lag time of 1.5 months total.  AWIS will receive July Commission Statements from the carrier during the month of August.  Once we receive all the Commission Statements, we then start to enter and process them during the second half of August.  After all July Commission Statements have been worked, our deadline is to cut all agent commission checks in one batch for the month and mail them out by September 7th to be received before the middle of the month.
