Trion secures and otherwise facilitates the purchase of insurance coverage for its policyholder clients from a variety of insurance carriers and group benefits providers (collectively "carriers") and sometimes engages the services of other entities in connection with the issuance of such coverage. In most instances, Trion is primarily compensated for the insurance brokerage services that it provides to its policyholder clients through commission payments that are based on the premium charged, and paid for, by the issuing carrier or company for each policy secured for Trion's clients. The percentage of these commissions varies by carrier or company and policy type. When receiving commissions, Trion acts as an appointed agent producer for the carriers, has duties and obligations for such insurance companies pursuant to its contracts with those insurers, and may provide services to its customers for insurers. In addition, Trion has entered into contingent compensation arrangements with carriers and companies based on circumstances, including without limitation, the overall volume of premiums paid to or policies issued by or through a particular carrier or company for Trion's clients; and the overall growth, persistency and/or retention of the premiums paid by Trion's clients to or through a particular company. Such compensation is conditional, non-guaranteed, payable at a future date, and not charged as a direct expense to the benefit plan. If User has additional questions regarding the compensation received by Trion for any of its insurance brokerage services, please contact Trion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
