Five Tips on Being Adequately Insured
Are you properly insured? Find out by using these five tips brought to you by SCORE Mentors.
Assess your company’s insurance needs. Property-casualty coverage isn’t enough. Consider a broad range of coverage, from business interruption and consequent loss of revenue to product liability and wrongful termination.
Shop around. Ask several agents to evaluate your insurable risks and listen to their ideas.
Don’t buy on price alone. Check www.ambest.com or your library for the insurance provider’s standing with A.M. Best Co., a company that rates insurers.
When you are expanding, ask your agent if you need an endorsement to your policy.
Search the Internet for more small-business insurance information. A good place to start is www.iiaa.org, the site of the Independent Insurance Agents of America.
