    Can a housewife with minimum education of 10th can become an insurance agent?

    I am a housewife with minimum education of 10th standard. I am married for 5 years and blessed with children. I finish my work very early and sit idly whole day. My sister is an insurance agent and she is doing well. She has completed her 12th and started doing it. She is earning well. Is there any necessity to complete 12th for this? Can I start my career as an agent directly or is there any procedure for this? Please explain.

    Hi,

    It depends on the insurance company.

    If you have good understanding and communication you can go ahead.

    you must be also ready to travel a lot.

    If your really passionate in doing that work you can go ahead.

    You should have capacity to interact well with people to cover them or impress them.

    Good Luck!!

    Yes madam.. You have the requisite qualification to become a successful agent/advisor in insurance companies.

    As your elder sister is insurance agent you can take all related information from her also.

    You should personally meet with the branch unit head like tata aig/kotak mohindra/hdfc/sbi life/and so on.

    Secondly you are to do classes with others as you have to obtain irda certificate on behalf of a company.

    After obtaining that certficate you are free from quality and enjoy the profession as far as you can.
    A sucessful energetic advisor can earn more than govt.employee.

    Thank you,

    Hi. I think the minimum educational qualifications for becoming an insurance agent according to IRDA guidelines is 10+2 or its equivalent exam. So i think if possible you may try to complete your education or try for other jobs which dont require such qualifications.

    After this their is a training program for the insurance agents by which you get the license for the same. It is for about 2 weeks.

    Or you can also try to earn online through EALP program by answering questions on various forums.

    Best of luck

    Hi friend,

    To become a insurance agent you need not be a highly qualified person.

    If you can read and write minimum english then you can definitely be a insurance agent.

    10th grade is more than enough to become a insurance agent.


    THE MAIN THINGS THAT ARE NEEDED TO BECOME A INSURANCE AGENT:-

    1. YOU NEED TO HAVE GOOD COMMUNICATION SKILLS.

    2. YOU SHOULD BE CAPABLE TO CONVIENCE PEOPLE WITH YOU WORDS.

    3. YOU SHOULD HAVE GOOD TALKING POWER.

    4. YOU NEED TO HAVE A SPIRIT TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS.

    5. YOU MUST BE THE PERSON WHO LOVES THE THRILL OF THE HUNT, THE RUSH OF A SALE AND SEE REJECTION AS A STEPPING-STONE TO EVENTUAL SUCCESS.


    So my dear friend to become an insurance agent you need not possess any higher qualification 10 is more than enough, all you need is the skill and the spirit to excel in the insurance industry.

    all the best.

    thanking you
