Other top agencies for quoting were Imming Ins., new agency DL Miller Ins., Koch Ins., Draper Ins. and Petri Ins. Other top agencies for production this month were Wohltman-Aherin and Bryant Ins.

Congratulations and thank you everyone! Be on the lookout for social media spotlights on the winners!
If you need to turn in a claim for one of your insureds, the most efficient way to expedite the claim is to submit it through our online IMT Dashboard system. This is the most direct path to an adjuster and notifies them immediately. To do it, simply look up your insured through Web Inquiry and click “Submit Claim” in the upper right corner of the screen. This tool is only available to agents. Stay safe everyone!
We will be continuing our Agency of the Month contest into 2020! Like last year, we will be giving 2 awards each month, one for the most quotes and one for the most new business. Each month 1 point will be awarded for every Home, Dwelling, Rental or Tenant policy written or quoted. Two points will be awarded for every farm written or quoted. Written premium will be used to determine tie breakers. We haven’t decided yet on what the prize will be for the Agency of the Year, but we would like it to be something that would include the whole staff and be a fun day! Suggestions are welcome!
We will run a social media promotion for the winner each month in each category as well as post that article here on our News Tab! Thank you for supporting Heartland Mutual!!

Effective 10/1/2018, Heartland Mutual will begin offering “Service Line Coverage.” Copies of the forms are available below and will be in our Endorsement Manual when they become effective.
“This is an optional, premium bearing endorsement that can be attached on new business, renewal, change of coverage, or an anniversary.” “This endorsement provides up to $10,000 for loss or damage resulting from a service line failure, subject to a $500 deductible. This coverage applies to exterior/underground water/sewer piping, power lines, and ground loop piping that connects to a heat pump. Coverage applies to dwellings only.”
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.
