Advantages of Being a Shelter Agent
At Shelter, our uncompromising commitment to excellence doesn't stop with our customers. We recognize that our sales professionals are what make us a premier organization in the insurance industry, and we support our agents with the following programs.
New Agents starting their careers with small books of business will receive additional subsidy to help purchase insurance.
All commissioned agents, their spouses, and children living in the agent's residence are eligible to join the Shelter Insurance Federal Credit Union. The credit union provides savings accounts, share draft (checking) accounts, Christmas Club accounts, and auto and signature loans.
Scholarships for Children of Employees/Agents
The Shelter Insurance Foundation provides college scholarships for the children of agents and employees. Agents and employees are eligible for this benefit after two years of service if the child meets certain eligibility criteria. A limited number of scholarships are available and a committee appointed by the foundation selects the recipients.
Agent Assistance Program
Personal Assistance Services (PAS) resources are available to Shelter agents, employees, and their families. This innovative benefit is designed to provide confidential assistance with work and life balance and other personal matters at no cost to the agent.
Shelter Travel is a full-service travel agency available to all agents for both business and personal travel. With a single phone call you may purchase airline tickets and make hotel, car or tour reservations.

The Transitional Agent Contract program allows you to begin your career as an independent contractor, with a contract, while working towards the opportunity to become a longer term independent contractor.
Shelter Insurance® agents are independent contractors, not employees of Shelter Insurance. As such, our agents are subject to a written contract. These agents may employ agency staff, who are not employees of Shelter Insurance.
