How to Become a State Farm Agent & Get an Insurance License

3 steps to Becoming a State Farm Insurance Agent:

Step 1: Become an Approved Candidate for a State Farm Agency

Becoming a State Farm insurance agent takes six to eight weeks and includes an assessment, industry exposure and formal presentation of a business proposal.

The Sales & Leadership Career Profile (SLCP) examines your work and financial situation, background, work preferences and business leadership aptitude.

Once approved, you’ll actively meet State Farm agents and leaders to help you better understand the career path ahead of you. As you learn, you’ll prepare a business proposal to present before a competency-based panel of State Farm executives and agency field leadership.

Step 2: Enter the Approved Candidate Pool and Complete a Full-Time Internship

The Approved Candidate pool is accessed for posting and site interviews with local offices. Once selected, you begin a paid, full-time internship lasting from six to nine months. This period involves gaining hands-on experience, classroom instruction, licensing, field visits and self-study. State Farm pays for your licensing fees.

Step 3: Complete a 12-Month Term Independent Contractor Agent (TICA) Period

Finally, you are appointed a 12-month Term Independent Contractor Agent (TICA), given a signing bonus and allowed to open your own agency. After successfully completing this one-year term, you become a full-fledged State Farm agent by choosing to sign a State Farm Agent’s Agreement.
