    ✅ Mark this step as complete once you have purchased E&O insurance.

  • Create a separate checking account for your business

    You can do this by setting up a new checking account with your existing financial institution or consider a local credit union for the best rates.

    Make sure you have a voided check. You will need this to set up direct deposits with carriers. 

    In place of a voided check, we can accept a letter from your bank. It must be signed by a bank representative, and include your routing number, account number, and personal information.

    These are the ONLY two options for setting up direct deposit payments. The carriers will not accept anything else.

    ✅ Mark this step as complete once you have a voided check ready or the letter from your bank.
