CONSIDERATIONS FOR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION INSURANCE:

Here are some things to think about if you’re considering Business Interruption Insurance:

  • Business Interruption Insurance cannot be purchased on its own; it must be added to a Property Insurance policy or included in a Business Owner’s Insurance policy.
  • Policy limits should be sufficient enough to cover a large amount of time to rebuild the permanent business space. Generally, the business must be closed for several days before coverage begins, and it does not pay for those days retroactively.
  • Price of coverage depends on the risk of disaster to the premises. This may depend on the business location, nature of the business and how easily the business could function at an alternate location on a temporary basis.
