OIA disaffiliated with PIA National, how does that affect your E&O coverage? It doesn’t! Our exclusive direct appointment with our insurance carriers is not reliant upon an affiliation with the PIA National.
For over 120 years OIA has been your trusted advisor helping you protect your agency, with over 85% of independent agents trusting us to provide them with insurance coverage. OIA has exclusivity with our markets which allows us to provide our agents with the broadest policy terms at the most competitive rates available.

For over 50 years, OIA has partnered with insurance carriers that have been focused on insuring the independent agency system.

Partnering with OIA allows us to assist you in meeting your risk management needs through training classes tailored to qualify your agency for policy discounts while providing industry specific instruction to mitigate your risk of an E&O claim. Through our carriers, you have access to risk management portals filled with leading topics around current coverage issues, templates for use within your agency to help you communicate to your clients and staff, and best practices for risk management.
