Insurance agent "E&O" (errors and omissions) insurance is a professional services liability policy that protects an insurance agent/producer or broker from a variety of claims. Insurance professionals generally need protection from legal action resulting from negligence in providing or recommending insurance coverages. A typical E&O policy will offer broad coverage including but not limited to:
The basic coverage form and state-specific endorsements can be expanded with cyber liability. Insurance brokerages that employ staff can also benefit from the inclusion or addition of fidelity bond (commercial crime) coverage to protect against theft and/or conversion of insurance premiums.
We currently offer up to five million dollar ($5mn) primary limits with a defense outside limit option. Excess layers may be purchased on a bespoke basis. Retentions can be as low as one thousand dollars ($1,000). Employment practices liability (EPL) of up to $25,000 sub-limit may be endorsed to the primary.
