The prestigious Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) includes more than 38,000 of the world’s leading professionals from the insurance and financial services industries. Active in more than 74 countries, the organization represents professionals from over 450 companies.

MDRT members maintain proven histories of professional expertise, superb customer care, and ethical practice. Furthermore, to join this international network, individuals must meet stringent sales requirements, such as earning either minimum annual commissions of USD $91,000 or a minimum annual gross income of USD $156,000 from sales of insurance and/or financial products. New MDRT members start out as Qualifying Members before they become Qualifying and Life Members and finally Life Members. The MDRT also offers two exclusive levels, Court of the Table and Top of the Table, which have even higher requirements. To qualify for Court of the Table, members must produce earnings either three times the amount required for standard MDRT membership, and for Top of the Table, six times that amount.
