About Us

pg-compare-horiztonals

Policygenius is America’s leading online insurance marketplace with headquarters in New York City and Durham, North Carolina. Our mission is to help people get insurance right by making it easy for them to understand their options, compare quotes, and buy a policy, all in one place. Since 2014 we’ve helped over 30 million people shop for insurance and placed $120 billion in coverage.

How we’re different

Policygenius is an insurance marketplace, not an insurance company. There's no shortage of companies out there offering fast or easy coverage, but we think a marketplace is the best way to compare them all — and Policygenius combines that marketplace experience with online tools, an expansive educational library, and guidance from real, licensed humans to help you get covered with confidence.

How we make money

We’re an independent insurance broker, so we get paid a commission by insurance companies for each sale. Insurance commissions are already built into the price of an insurance policy, so you’re not paying any extra for working with us to buy a policy. Our compensation on any particular purchase may vary depending on a number of factors, including the type and size of product, the insurer, and the volume of business we have with an insurer, but we don’t push for or give preference to any one insurer over another because of the commission. We're here to fight for you, not for ourselves. (Want to know what commission we'd earn on a specific insurance policy you see in our marketplace? Just ask!)

Our licenses

All insurance brokers are required by law to be licensed in each state they do business. You can find our licenses here.

2. Is Policygenius a corporate affiliate of any insurance company?

No. We’re an independent insurance broker, which means that we’re not owned by an insurance company, nor do we own one. Instead, we sell insurance policies from multiple insurers without bias or favor toward any of them. It’s important to us that we help you find the right insurance policy for your needs — not which company you buy it from.

3. Is it cheaper to buy insurance through Policygenius?

Insurance rates are regulated by law, which means that no company, broker, or agent can offer you a discount on a policy. That doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to save money, though! Each insurer calculates risk differently, and they all strive to offer policies at competitive prices. That’s why Policygenius helps you compare quotes from multiple companies in one place: to make it easy to spot potential savings.
