Our Mission

To champion independent insurance agents in all we do and provide the resources they need to be their best. ​

Why? Because we believe independent insurance agents serve customers best with trusted advice and the right coverage options to protect what matters most.


What We Do

Big I New York exists to fulfill the educational, political, and business interests of our more than 1,750 agencies and their 13,000 plus employees.
Our members are independent insurance agents and brokers, which means that they can provide consumers with a choice of products from more than one insurance company and in turn give consumers unrivaled service, and the best auto, homeowner, and business coverage to meet their changing needs.
