Printing and Filling Out Applications

3 Different Ways Applications Can Be Filled Out

Paper Application

iGo eApp

iPad PDF Application

Your First Application MUST be submitted on a paper Application for Each Carrier

How to Print off Paper Applications

Your first applications for each carrier MUST be submitted on a paper application.  Most carriers use a website called iPipeline to give agents a central location to get all carrier applications, but the exception is American-Amicable.  Use the links below to go to either iPipeline or American-Amicable’s application website and watch the video to the right to see exactly where you go to find the applications you need.

Watch the Video Below on How to Print Your Applications

Once you have written your first piece of business with a carrier, you will be assigned a producer or agent number for that specific carrier. You could continue to write paper apps if you choose, but it’s recommended that you start using e-Apps (electronic applications).  Below, you’ll find more information on both methods so you can choose the method that you feel the most comfortable with (just keep in mind, e-Apps are not available until you have an agent number with that particular carrier so you’ll have to use paper apps until that point).[memb_has_any_tag tagid=”531″]

(if the Print Application button is not working for you, click here, login into your SFG Site, and select ipipeline at the bottom of the page. If the American Amicable application button is not working,  click here  and click under “For Standard Applications, for American -Amicable Applications.  or try this  click here. )

Once you have submitted your first paper application to EACH INDIVIDUAL carrier, you now can submit E-apps and or use your IPad and Notability to Submit your Apps.

Using Your iPad to Fill out Paper Apps

If you use an iPad, you’ll get the applications the same way as you get your paper applicaitons, only instead of printing them off , just save them as a PDF document on your computer. We recommend you manage and organize them in a Dropbox or Google Drive folder to make it easy to access from your I-pad.  Watch the video to the left for more detailed instructions. Please note: the beginning of the videos show the old Symmetry Website, so you can use the links above to get to the application pages. Also, the “Home Protector” name has changed to “Home Certainty”.
