Program Description

Many business owners sustain losses due to unforeseen factors. Many of these losses can be covered by the business interruption (BI) coverage offered within (or as an endorsement to) the policy that the business holds. However, knowing what kind of information and/or documentation that is needed to assist in determining a potential claim is not readily spelled out in the policies for the business owners to follow. This webinar will help individuals and business owners to understand what information is expected from them in order to properly develop their business interruption claim.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- List the information and/or documentation needed to be gathered to determine the BI claim
- Understand the interplay between the coverage and documentation needed
- Identify the sources of such information and/or documentation
- Explain the industry research needed as part of determining the BI claim
