About Method


Method is an MGA dedicated to providing outstanding value to our six carrier partners, over 4,000 agency partners, and their customers across the entire United States.

We focus exclusively on workers’ compensation. Our integrated insurance, claims and risk platform couples decades of deep expertise with leading-edge technology to deliver unparalleled service and results. By leveraging deep learning, data analysis, and automation to drive continual improvements, we create superior outcomes for injured workers, employers, and insurers.

Through our national distribution platform, we serve employers of virtually any type, but our proven approach to safety, loss-prevention and claims management provides added value to industries where injuries are the most frequent and severe. By both reducing the frequency of injuries — and ensuring that when injuries do occur employees receive the best possible care and get back to work as soon as possible — we reduce the total cost of workplace injuries.


Deliver the right workers compensation solution
for businesses and their employees.


We aim to drive industry-changing outcomes,
provide exceptional service to our customers
and create a rewarding workplace for our employees.
