As is a common practice in the industry, AIS benefits from programs implemented by certain insurers, wholesale brokers (property & casualty) and administrators (benefits) providing for compensation, in addition to commissions, to be paid to AIS based upon differing factors. This additional compensation may also include cash, non-cash awards and benefits. The insurance you purchase through AIS may be issued by an insurer, wholesale broker or administrator who has such a program. For certain lines of insurance, AIS may be eligible for contingency/bonus programs that are calculated by a percentage, based on the amount of all written premium placed with each insurance carrier less any applicable administration costs and claims experience in a given year, and thus the amount fluctuates from year‐toyear. These insurance carriers have different programs with different qualifications, which are subject to change at any time. Payments received by AIS under such programs are not attributable to any one insured, as they are calculated by the total premiums placed with a specific carrier each year.
