The Colorado Division of Insurance recently released a new consumer advisory, How to Choose an Insurance Agent. Here you can find helpful tips including the differences between various types of agents and brokers; what to expect when you meet with an agent for the first time; and how to decide whether to use an agent or work with a company directly, as with many online insurance providers. You can also link to the Division’s databases that can help you verify an agent’s license and check for disciplinary actions and consumer complaints.
