Premium Financing

The goal of premium financing is twofold. Business owners can alleviate the financial burden associated with paying a lump sum for their insurance premium, and insurance agents can reach a broader audience with specific insurance needs.

Our Financing Solutions

IPFS offers flexible premium financing with multiple benefits for our agencies and the business owners they insure.

For qualified insureds, we may be able to offer financing for fully earned policies, audits, bonds, and retrospective rated policies.

Sample terms for commercial policy financing might be:

25% down and 9 monthly payments or

A Strategic Ally in Premium Financing

Insurance agents, agencies, and underwriters collaborate with IPFS to offer financing solutions to business owners seeking insurance coverage. As a privately held company, IPFS is able to provide custom solutions to fit the needs of our customers in ways other lenders cannot.

One way we provide a competitive edge is with our quick, easy approval process with competitive rates and terms. 

Policyholder arranges insurance through agency
Agency creates a quote using ipfs.com to generate a premium finance agreement
Policyholder signs premium finance agreement and pays down payment
Insurance premium is funded by IPFS in accordance with the premium finance agreement
Policyholder repays IPFS in installments for loan

Because the purchase of insurance premiums does not require financing, the cost of the desired coverage is the same whether your policyholder decides to finance the premium or not.

Loan length depends on several variables. Typical agreements use a nine- or ten-month installment.
