Operating on an "open-brokerage" format.

McGowan Program Administrators operates on an “open-brokerage” format. We do not hold our retail agents to premium or account volume requirements, so whether you place 1 account or 100 accounts with us, we are always grateful for your business. We do, however, require that retail agents placing business with us carry at least $1,000,000 of E&O Liability.

In order to become a fully-enrolled agent with McGowan Program Administrators, we require the following items:

  1. Broker Questionnaire
  2. Brokerage Agreement
  3. Updated W9 Form
  4. P&C Licenses (Agency & Individual) for each state in which you do business;
  5. Declaration Page from your E&O Policy.

We look forward to working with you!
