An insurance agent is a licensed professional who represents one or more insurance companies and sells insurance policies to individuals or organizations.

Insurance agents can help individuals and businesses navigate the complexities of insurance policies and coverage options, and provide advice on selecting the right policies based on their needs and budget.

Agents typically earn commissions on the policies they sell and may also offer additional services such as policy renewal reminders and claims assistance. They may specialize in different types of insurance, such as health, life, auto, home, or business insurance.

Some agents work independently, while others are employed by insurance companies or agencies.
