Direct Deposit Commissions

We are in the process of setting up direct deposit commissions!  If you would like to enroll, the form can be found on our applications & forms tab along with instructions.  You already have access to your commission statements through the IMT Dashboard.  In an effort to streamline this process and reduce paper, we will no longer mail copies of the statements once our direct deposit system is in place.  Please call our office with any questions.

Online Quoting is Now Available!

Great News!!  You may now quote homeowners policies online through the Vector Quoting System!  Simply log in to the Agents IMT Dashboard and click on “New Quote”.  Once you create a quote, you can access it through the “Quotes/Apps” button.  IMT held a webinar tutorial for our Agents on April 11, 2017.  You may watch the webinar video through the link below.   If you do not wish to use the quoting system, don’t worry.  You can still email or fax quote requests to our underwriters who will be happy to help you.  If you have any questions or would like to provide feedback, please contact us!  We’ve worked very hard on this system and hope it works well for you!!
