The MIAA Origin Story


MIAA is NOT an insurance franchise, aggregator, brokerage or one of the many clusters available to independent agents.  We are an Insurance Integrator helping insurance agencies and have proven strategies that have worked for our existing members.

History & Purpose

Midwest Insurance Agency Alliance (MIAA) was formed in 2001 as a regional master agency of SIAA. Headquartered in Lincoln, NE, MIAA serves members located in the states of Nebraska, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota, as well as eastern Kansas, upper Minnesota, and northwestern Missouri.

We provide access to insurance carriers and programs otherwise unavailable to agents. Our member agencies compete with any size agency in a variety of personal and commercial markets. This structure enables our member agents to earn the best commission, excess compensation and profit sharing in the marketplace year in and year out.

Our Mission

MIAA is dedicated to the creation, retention, growth, and evolution of the local independent insurance agency.

Our Core Values

Treat agencies like partners. Foster the entrepreneurial spirit. Continuously seek innovation that makes a difference. Build long-term relationships based on honesty and integrity.

Our Promise

We are the proven total solution for the independent agency and the proven distribution system for strategic partner companies.
