Group Personal Excess Liability

Group Personal Excess Liability  

Overview

Average liability settlements in the US are over $1 million, yet the coverage you may have through your home, auto, or watercraft policies is typically limited.
 

A personal excess liability policy, or "umbrella" policy, provides additional coverage when the unexpected happens. It covers damages if you are legally obligated to pay to another party due to bodily injury, property damage, or personal injury, such as libel or slander.
 

The benefits of purchasing coverage as part of this program include:

  • Premium group pricing that is lower than purchasing this coverage individually
  • Access to higher coverage limits
  • Simplified underwriting requirements

Why do I need excess liability coverage? 

Common activities and circumstances can be the highest liability risk factors. Large claims for personal damages can stem from:

  • • Teenage drivers
  • • Social media use
  • • Home swimming pool
  • • Leasing a property
  • • Domestic employees
  • • Board membership
  • • Home entertaining
  • • Dog ownership
  • • Sharing vehicles
  •  

As you enjoy the lifestyle rewards of your career success, it's important to remember that the risk of facing a personal liability lawsuit increases with one's assets. And, individuals known to have substantial assets are particularly vulnerable.

FAQs

Answers about the plan, including eligibility, options, enrollment, customer service and more.

  • Don't I already have liability coverage through my homeowners or auto policies?

    While you may have some personal liability coverage through your homeowners or auto insurance policy, that coverage is typically limited. As the "excess" in its name suggests, Personal Excess Liability coverage extends beyond the liability limits provided by the primary insurance policies for your home, automobile, watercraft, or other assets and provides more protection for your assets and lifestyle.
  • What is a "group" personal excess liability policy?

    Purchasing personal excess liability coverage as part of a group program provides several advantages:

    • Higher Limits of Liability - Personal liability limits high enough to protect those with substantial income and assets are not often available on an individual basis.
    • Premium Group Pricing - Participants can typically take advantage of lower premiums than when applying for personal excess liability coverage as an individual.
    • Simplified Underwriting Requirements - When enrolling in a group plan, participants may qualify without the evaluation of their personal history.
