Down to One

When AIS was founded in 1979, it was guided by a simple principle absent across the insurance services industry: bring “big guy” benefits to everyone—including the “little guys.” Since then, AIS has worked tirelessly to bring the best insurance and ancillary products to the marketplace, working with the nation’s top providers to create exclusive offers down to one subscriber, found nowhere else.

Consistently breaking new ground.

Always ahead of the curve, President & CEO Edward W. Chin envisioned a system thirty years ago to simplify the management and sale of insurance and other products. In that process, he created associations CARA I and CARA II, and a one-of-a-kind billing system that enables AIS to bill for multiple carriers down to one on a single invoice. AIS has remained dedicated to its fundamentals, and always dreams up new ways to
make things easier for agents and their customers.

This new website is part of that process.

The insurance industry is changing rapidly due to new laws, regulations and federal plans. Due to higher premiums and lower commissions for medical insurance, many brokers are seeking to expand their offerings. AIS understands, and has focussed on developing a strong set of unmatched ancillary benefits. Branching out has allowed us to offer another perk; our products and services include payroll and HR, allowing our associates to compete with PEOs and maintain their book of business.

We really do mean the “little guys.” – AIS is down to one.

Our associations and unique relationships with carriers allows us to offer some of the best stuff, at the best rates, with the best commissions, down to one. That means no employer contribution requirements, no employee participation requirements. This might seem too good to be true, but we’ve been doing it for years, with companies like…
