If you have any additional insured's, please list them below. The reason we ask here, is because if you have a landlord or a food vendor asking to be listed as an additional insured on your General Liability policy, we will want to factor this into the quote that we work up.

When a data breach is experienced, there is often a large expense incurred by simply responding to the crisis through conducting proper Public Relations. If you would like coverage for this exposure, please indicate the amount.
Workers' Compensation
An experience modification, commonly called an “e-mod,” is an important factor used to adjust your work comp premium. Experience modifiers are calculated by organizations known as "rating bureaus" and rely on information reported by insurance companies. The rating bureau used by most states is the NCCI, the National Council on Compensation Insurance.
An owner of a business has the option to exclude themselves from their Work Comp coverage and thus save some money on their premiums. If you would like to take this option, please list each owner, their annual payroll, and the type of work they are specifically engaged in (ie: office work, sales, in the field, etc.)
Please list each classification along with its corresponding payroll. For example, you may have a "server/waiter/waitress" classification for your servers with a corresponding payroll of $100,000, or a "chef/cook" classification for your kitchen staff with a payroll of $50,000.

If your car is damaged or destroyed in an accident, collision insurance coverage will typically pay to fix or replace it. Types of covered accidents include hitting another car or hitting a stationary object, like a bridge or a tree.
With Comprehensive coverage, your insurance company pays for damage to your auto caused by an event other than a collision, such as fire, theft or vandalism. If you hit an animal, or if your auto is flooded or stolen, Comprehensive coverage will apply.
Non-owned and hired automobile liability insurance covers bodily injury and property damage caused by a vehicle you hire (including rented or borrowed vehicles) or caused by non-owned vehicles (vehicles owned by others, including vehicles owned by your employees).
Commercial Umbrella
A business umbrella policy picks up where your business auto liability, general liability or other liability coverage stops. Umbrella insurance is an inexpensive way to provide extra coverage against bodily injury and/or property damage.
