Commercial Umbrella Insurance

If you want — or need — additional insurance coverage beyond your other business insurance policy, you want umbrella insurance.

In the unfortunate case that you need to make a claim in excess of the maximum payable amount outlined in your standard business policy, umbrella insurance can help cover the difference. This is especially important for high-risk businesses and business owners with an above-average possibility of being sued. However, looking at the exorbitant damages that we’ve seen awarded in the past, umbrella insurance is an important coverage for all businesses to consider.

What Coverages Are Eligible for Umbrella Insurance?

Unfortunately, not all commercial coverages are eligible for umbrella insurance. Typically, only the coverages directly related to certain types of liability qualify for umbrella coverage.

As a general rule of thumb, Umbrella Coverage can be extended to:

  • General liability coverage
  • Hired or non-owned commercial auto liability insurance
  • Employment practices liability insurance (EPLI)

It’s also important to note for another coverage to be eligible for umbrella insurance, it needs to have clearly defined policy limits.

What Coverages Are NOT Eligible for Umbrella Coverage?

Umbrella insurance cannot be applied to any risk for which you don’t already have pre-existing coverage. In other words, umbrella insurance cannot function as stand-alone coverage. It can only be used as a secondary form of protection alongside another core coverage.

Beyond these limits, some types of coverages are not eligible for umbrella coverage at all. A few examples include:
