Despite near constant disruption from the twin forces of digital transformation and economic uncertainty, independent insurance agents have never been more satisfied with their carrier partners. According to the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Independent Agent Satisfaction Study,SM released today, overall agent satisfaction with insurers of both personal lines and commercial lines has reached an all-time high. Commercial lines satisfaction achieves a significant 16-point increase (on a 1,000-point scale) from 2021.

“The past two years have been tough for insurance agents, particularly in the commercial lines space where many businesses have been struggling,” said Stephen Crewdson, senior director, insurance business intelligence at J.D. Power. “What we’re seeing now in the data is the normalization of the marketplace and a return to more frequent and more positive interactions between agents and carriers. Importantly, we’re also seeing trends that suggest the changes made since the pandemic—such as increased digital engagement and updates to legacy systems with new platforms and portals—are having a positive effect on the agent/carrier relationship.”
