Who We Are

​​Big I New Jersey (formerly IIABNJ), is the New Jersey chapter of the national Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA), the nation's oldest and largest agent association.

Big I New Jersey represents New Jersey's Trusted Choice independent insurance agents and brokers who are business owners and producers working in the best interest of their consumers to provide a range of competitive products and services. Since 1893, we have served our members through federal and state legislative and regulatory activities, business and professional development opportunities, publications, annual conferences, and more.

Big I New Jersey develops programs and services that are designed to help members achieve more collectively than they could individually. The commitment to helping independent agents operate their businesses fairly and profitably is as strong today as it was more than 120 years ago. Now, more than ever, independent agents rely on Big I New Jersey to provide them with a competitive edge, as well as an unparalleled legislative and regulatory representation.
