Group supplemental commissions
A broker may also qualify for Supplemental Commissions paid by Unum. For Group insurance products, Supplemental Commissions may be paid in an amount equal to a fixed percentage of total group insurance premiums. The Supplemental Commissions for employer-paid GCI is eligible for both new sales and premium payment rates and may range from 0% to 5%. Employee-paid GCI is eligible for only the GCI premium payment rate on both first year and renewal premium and may range from 0% to 1.25%. The exact Supplemental Commissions percentage payable to any broker is based upon the total dollar amount of all group insurance premium sold and
group and voluntary insurance premiums or number of group policies that broker had in force with Unum in the prior calendar year. Supplemental Commissions may be calculated differently for other insurance products. Supplemental Commissions are not charged directly to policies. Therefore, the premium you pay is not impacted if your broker receives Supplemental Commissions.
Enrollment supplemental commissions for employee paid plans with issue age rates
