InsurTech Breeze teams up with PIA


Breeze, a disability insurance company, has partnered with The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) to provide a turnkey disability insurance solutions.

Founded in 2020 by Colin Nabity and Cody Leach, Breeze has built insurance technology that makes it easier to apply and underwrite supplemental insurance products like income protection and critical illness insurance.

The company offers consumers a completely digital way to quote, apply, and bind policies that offer protection in the event of cancer, heart attacks, strokes, and other medical conditions that can lead to a loss of income and cause financial trauma.

The partnership will see the independent insurance agencies comprising PIA utilise Breeze’s proprietary technology and online platform to quote disability insurance in seconds and submit client applications in minutes.

Breeze recently launched an income protection solution to help employers support working parents.

The InsurTech also offers two long-term disability insurance products, short-term disability insurance, critical illness insurance and group disability insurance.

PIA member agents will be able to quote and sell any of these income protection products through the Breeze Agent Portal or by sharing their custom Breeze agent landing page with clients who want to quote and apply for coverage themselves.

According to Breeze, the partnership with PIA will help member agents efficiently tap into the market, and fulfil its mission to close the income protection gap.

Robert Holt, vice president of products & services for PIA, said, “PIA is excited to bring Breeze’s disability insurance sales platform to our member agents.

“Independent insurance agents are well-positioned to discuss and promote income protection plans to their personal and business line clients. By partnering with Breeze, PIA can offer the technology needed to help our member agents insure what is often their clients most important asset: their income.”
