Business Owners Policy (BOP) Insurance Information
Combined Coverage for Special Advantages.
Your business is a significant financial investment. Furthermore, owning and operating your own company means tying your personal finances to the success and growth of your business. Given these factors, you should diligently maintain suitable loss control measures. Insuring your business can make all the difference when facing potential financial losses, and a business owners insurance policy (BOP) may be an integral component of this protection.
What Is a BOP?
BOPs are typically intended for small- and medium-sized organizations and can provide versatile coverage for many common risks and exposures. These arrangements can be convenient and cost-effective, as bundling several types of insurance under a single policy can reduce your overall premiums and simplify acquiring and maintaining coverage.
What Does a BOP Cover?
Although it may often be possible to customize your BOP to suit your business’s needs, these policies generally include the following coverages:
In some cases, your organization may also augment your BOP by bundling additional coverages (e.g., workers’ compensation insurance, professional liability insurance), depending on your insurer.
Who Needs a BOP?
A BOP’s versatile protections may make it an attractive investment for most small- to medium-sized businesses. Risks and exposures related to general liability, commercial property and business interruptions often transcend industry lines. BOPs may be a suitable loss control measure for your organization, regardless of its sector of specific operations. Without coverage provided by a BOP, even a single incident could lead to significant out-of-pocket losses and dire consequences for your business’s finances and future.
- General liability insurance may provide financial assistance if your organization is at fault for an incident that affected a third party, such as the following:
- Bodily injury
- Property damage
- Personal and advertising injury (e.g., slander, libel, copyright infringement, false advertising)
- Commercial property insurance may help pay for losses involving your business’s physical property, including the following:
- Business interruption insurance may insulate your company from financial consequences if a covered incident disrupts your normal operations by helping to pay for the following:
- Rent and mortgage payments
- Reduced income
- Employee wages
- Tax and loan payments
It’s important to note that certain businesses might not be eligible for a BOP, such as bars or car dealerships. Your insurance agent can help assess your unique business risks and determine if a BOP suits your exposures.
