The Value of Tail End Insurance Coverage
When choosing insurance coverage for your company, you think primarily about the coverage you receive while your policy is active. While this is important, ensuring that you also have tail end insurance coverage helps provide protection even after the typical life of your insurance policy has ended.
What is Tail End Coverage?
Tail end coverage is coverage for claims made after your insurance policy expires. Without these policies, claims made after the insurance termination date are not eligible for coverage.
Why Get Tail End Coverage?
Sometimes, claims are not made immediately following an incident. If claims are reported after the termination of insurance and you don’t have tail end insurance coverage, the claim may not be covered even if the incident happened prior to termination.
How Long is Tail End Coverage?
You choose your duration when purchasing tail end coverage. Once you choose the duration, it cannot be changed, so it’s important to ensure you purchase an adequate amount of time.
While you may see your insurance termination date as a fixed ending for your coverage, it doesn’t have to be. With tail end insurance coverage, you ensure that, even if the claims are not filed until later, your business is covered for any incidents that happen during your coverage period.
