Things to Remember...
  • Wesco Insurance is part of the AmTrust Financial Group Inc
  • Wesco no longer sells products under its own brand name
  • Wesco offers credit protection products to help mitigate risk

Wesco Insurance Company was formed in 1962 as a property and casualty provider to small businesses. Today, small business remains at its core even though it has since expanded into other areas.

In 2006, the company was acquired by New York-based AmTrust Financial Group Inc. It now operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of AmTrust, underwriting policies on their behalf.

As such, Wesco Insurance Company no longer maintains its own web presence or sells products under its own brand name.

Wesco Insurance Company Agents

Wesco’s parent company makes available the opportunity for licensed agents to become what it terms a “subproducing” agent.

The company offers an online PDF application for interested agents to download, fill out, and submit for approval.

Agents who would prefer to fill out the application online have that option as well. Approved agents are given access to an online portal and its suite of tools to help them sell and administrate AmTrust policies.

Unfortunately, the AmTrust website doesn’t give any clear indication as to whether or not approved agents must represent all lines of business insurance that the company offers.

It may be possible to work with only a couple of lines that an agency is comfortable with.

However, the only way to verify this information is to contact AmTrust prior to filling out an agent application.

Wesco Insurance Company Claims

Wesco and AmTrust pride themselves on the most efficient and fast claims service in the business.

The parent company maintains an automated claims platform that allows its representatives to quickly process claims while remaining completely paperless.

Claims can be initiated 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using a toll-free number that should be available on your policy documents.

The company’s medical director assists in evaluating all worker’s compensation and medical claims, while a three-point contact system quickly expedites the processing of automobile and property damage claims.
