The Thimble experience is very streamlined, modern, and easy to navigate from start to finish. Some companies do not make it so clear about how to do business with them.

Thimble Broker Program FAQs

What is the Thimble Broker Program?

Our Broker Portal makes it easy for top brokers to partner with us and bind A-rated business insurance for their clients faster than ever.

 

Through the portal, brokers can build and bind quotes for clients, keep track of sales, and send their unique link out to grow their book seamlessly. We pay affiliated brokers 10% of the policy value on every policy they sell with Thimble, and appointed sub-producers also earn 17.5% commission on annual policies.

 

And Thimble brokers keep their clients for life; you continue to earn on every policy extension or renewal.

Please note: You must be a licensed property & casualty broker in order for Thimble to process referral payments and commissions.

Which clients can I sell Thimble coverage to?

Thimble offers an innovative range of insurance essentials built for small businesses and independent workers of all sizes. Coverage can be purchased from an hour to a full year, or by the month with Thimble Monthly, the top choice among Thimble’s insureds. Small business owners want the freedom of working for themselves with flexible insurance to match, and Thimble makes it possible for over 140 activities at any stage of their growth. See our full list of included activities here.

 

Availability varies by state.

Does Thimble require its broker partners to carry their own errors and omissions insurance coverage?

Thimble carries its own E&O insurance to cover its actions, but broker partners are required to carry at least $1M in cyber liability and E&O coverage as a precaution.

How is the coverage arranged by Thimble different from Markel’s general liability offering?

In contrast to Markel’s annual general liability policies, the general liability insurance arranged by Thimble is available on demand, monthly, or annually, with dynamic coverage options as short as an hour. By joining the Thimble Broker Program, brokers are able to price short-term risks and offer their clients access to a new product, along with binding monthly policies and  traditional annual options. 

 

Availability varies by state.

Who is the broker of record on Thimble policies?

While Thimble is the broker of record on all policies referred by affiliated brokers, Thimble makes sure that brokers own the client for life by paying the broker referral payments for all future extensions and renewals by the client, along with copying the broker on all transactional communications from Thimble, like cancellations, policy changes, and more.

 

Appointed sub-producers are listed as the broker of record on policies arranged by Thimble.

Can I see an example Certificate of Insurance and policy?

Yes, you can see examples of policies by state in our Broker Portal at broker.thimble.com.

How does payment for referrals work?

As an affiliated Thimble broker, you will receive a 10% of the policy value of every purchase attributed to you, whether bound by you or purchased with your widget or referral link.

 

Payments are made on the 10th of the month or once you reach $50 of commission (whichever comes later), you will be paid out for commission earned in the previous month (or months, if you just reached the $50 threshold). Thimble also pays bonuses to brokers who refer clients! Bonuses start at $50 per new customer referral. Payments are deposited directly into the bank account linked on your Broker Portal.
