About Insurance Premium Finance
The goal of premium financing is to alleviate a financial burden for business owners and to provide insurance agencies a catalyst to reach a broader audience with a specific need.
How Does Insurance Premium Financing Work?
Insurance agents partner with Pelican Premium Finance to offer financing to their commercial business clients. Clients in need of financing to cover an insurance policy or multiple policies will sign an agreement with Pelican Premium Finance. Based on that agreement, the client will submit a down payment and Pelican Premium Finance pays the remainder of the premium amount. The client will then make payments on the loan to Pelican Premium Finance, as stated in the loan agreement.
