icecold, I like the way you think especially after reading how you handle clients. 

 
if you do "right" by the uncle, when he sends you a referral, they are going to be pre-disposed to trust you.  
 
ALL:
Stay tuned to learn more about careers via www.justcareerchat.com (under construc but should be up in near future" maybe Feb):  FA's, feel free to post there who can offer helpful/constructive info re: this re: career field although the site will cover all career fields (even morticians).  :-)

Nowadays most folks use computers to calculate them.

You are asking the wrong question.
 
You should be asking questions like:  How can I help a lot of people and get them to buy SOMETHING from me so I will get paid?
 
No signatures = no income, no matter HOW the commissions are calculated.

i better expand on the question i asked i while back. i am a broker in the uk and have sold my business. i will be moving to boston in jan and plan to setup on my own once i have all the necessary exams fully completed. i would like to know if commsions in the us are calclated the same as in the uk  i.e upfront commsion paid by insurance company for new biz followd by a yearly renewal for the life of the policy assuming that your not charging a fee.

Generally the answer would be 'yes'.
