If I’m at a sellers house and a stair collapses and i break my leg. I won’t be able to work. Workman’s comp would come in handy!
Caldwell Banker offers it. By the way, I’m in North Carolina and i just recieved my license.
Hi Deirdre –
Congratulations on becoming a new agent! As you know, most agents are technically independent contractors (not employees) with their brokerage and you are paid by commission. This means that the cost of a lot of things that you might be used to an employer paying, and likely now on you. For example, healthcare benefits. While some larger firms will offer benefits packages that allow you to buy in at reduced rates, most do not offer worker’s compensation insurance that I’m aware of. Be sure to talk to your particular brokerage as to what they offer.
