The Story Behind the Contest
In the early fall of 1966, Security National was celebrating its first full year in business. During that year, George Quist had added several new and hungry agents to his company, many of whom had left jobs in other industries that did not require them to “dress up” for work.
After noticing that some of these agents wore the same suit multiple times a week, George decided to have a sales contest where these new agents could earn clothing suitable for working in the insurance business. He devised a program that challenged these agents to help families and to reward agents based on their performance; thus, Founder’s Month was born. We’ve moved away from awarding suits, but Security National’s appreciation for its agents remains the same!Our Founder, George Quist
Our Bonus Contests help you supercharge your Founder’s Month Bonus. You could earn extra commissions, reach a higher bonus level, or get rewarded for consistently submitting apps. Bonus Contest Weeks are announced after the end of Founder’s Month, so make sure to treat each week like it could be a bonus week!
Bonus Week Commission Rules
During Bonus Commissions week, each additional app you submit earns a higher commission. You could earn up to double commissions on each app!
Bonus is paid off of application received date, not paid date. Bonus commissions will be calculated based on the advance rate originally assigned to the policy: If you are negative in your reserves at the end of the contest, you will forfeit your bonus. If a contract terminates for any reason within six (6) months, the bonus commission will be charged back against your next advance, not from your reserves.
**Standard Advance Rates apply. See chart below for details.
Bonus Production Week Rules
Boost your production numbers so you can earn a larger Founder’s Month Bonus! During Bonus Production week, each additional app you submit builds extra production that will be applied to your cumulative Founder’s Month contest production.
Bonus is paid off of application received date, not paid date. Bonus production will be calculated based on the advance rate originally assigned to the policy: If you are negative in your reserves at the end of the contest, you will forfeit your bonus.
