PFA – Premium Finance Associates was founded in June of 2002 under the premise that premium finance companies have certain strengths and weaknesses.  Some will finance Work Comp premiums while others won’t.  Some will process personal lines premium while others only specialize in commercial lines.  Some will process assigned risk premiums while others refuse to accept.  The point is that while some premium finance companies excel in certain areas of finance, others do not.  It is important that the streamline of business is not interrupted by rescinded premium finance contracts.  This causes delays and potential cancellation due to funding issues which interrupts production.

At Premium Finance Associates, we bring over a decade of experience in working relationships with various national premium finance companies licensed in all 50 states.  We take a consultative approach to discern what types of commercial/personal/life lines business best matches the strengths of the companies we represent.  Whether your agency specializes in trucking, construction or professional liability, our companies compete to earn the privilege of financing your insured’s premium.
