A: Yes for the rates shown above! The process takes only a few minutes, includes your online application, and coverage can be provided the same day! 

Q: I have insurance for myself, but I need insurance for my business, how do I get that set up?  
A: Once you become a member of AFS, an SFIC agent will reach out to you to ensure you receive the $50 General Liability discount. They will also work with you to create a custom insurance package to meet your needs within your budget. Learn more.

Q: I need insurance for the trainers/instructors at my studio, do you offer that as well?
A: Yes! If you own the studio, we have plans that cover you (the studio owner), your direct employees, and all of the clients training in your studio - but it does not cover an independent contractor for their own individual professional liability. Keep in mind that you can also save your trainers/instructors lots of money by referring them to AFS to receive their professional liability insurance as well. 
 
Q: I'm already an AFS member, how do I get insurance? 
A: Great! Email us and we can either send you the direct online application or connect you with an SFIC agent to handle all your insurance needs and apply the AFS member discounts.   

Q: How do I renew my insurance?
A: Your dedicated SFIC agent will reach out to you prior to your renewal date to handle your renewal quickly and professionally.
