Ask the Life Insurance Expert
If I transfer my life insurance policy to a new company does the new agent make money?
Yes, the new agent will make a commission on the sale. What you’re doing is buying a new policy. There really is no “transfer” of life insurance policies between companies. The new company will underwrite you like any new customer.
For a life insurance policy, a typical commission will be more than half of the first year’s premium, according to The Wall Street Journal. Of course this commission is paid by the insurance company, not you.
