Last month I participated in a panel discussion about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and it’s implications for business income insurance. Below is a link to the video podcast if you’re interested in hearing different viewpoints about coverage, litigation, government actions, etc.

COVID-19 and Business Interruption Insurance

How will your agency be impacted?

COVID-19 has upended our lives and brought the global economy to a standstill. In the recovery, insurance will be most impacted by whether business interruption insurance carriers choose to approve or deny the inevitable flood of claims from businesses forced to slow or halt operations. While many legislators are calling on insurers to pay up, lawsuits have already been filed against insurers who have denied them, and even the President himself has weighed in. The reality is that paying out claims en masse could cripple an industry.

Watch this webinar and let our panel of experts help you clarify your understanding of the issue. You’ll learn:

  • How your agency will be impacted
  • What you need to communicate to policyholders
  • A path forward for independent agencies
