Who We Are


The Independent Insurance Agents of Houston (IIAH) is a local non-profit trade association of Houston area independent insurance agencies and affiliate companies.  Chartered by the State of Texas in 1924, IIAH is recognized as the largest local independent insurance agents association in the United States, representing more than 328 member agencies and affiliate companies that include over 10,000 individual members.

IIAH member agencies range in size from one person to the nation's largest privately owned independent agency.  IIAH is affiliated with the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas and the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America, and is an active advocate on behalf of independent insurance agents and their clients before legislative, regulatory and judicial bodies.  IIAH offers a major commitment to professionalism in providing education, governmental advocacy, insurance markets and technical resources to their member independent agencies and affiliates.

Unlike company employed agents, IIAH members represent more than one insurance company, so they can offer their clients a wider choice of auto, home, business, life and health insurance products.  IIAH members not only advise clients about insurance, they recommend loss prevention ideas that can cut costs.  If a loss occurs, the independent agents stands with the client until the claim is settled.
