COVID-19: Impacts on business interruption insurance values

Synopsis
3 Minute Read

With the wide-ranging impacts from COVID-19, don’t wait to re-evaluate your business interruption insurance values. Find out why — and how we can help.

Many businesses have experienced significant economic impacts from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Reduced sales and business closures will affect an organization’s outlook, perhaps for months or years to come. And this sudden unexpected change may require you to revise your annual business interruption insurance values. 

Insurance premium calculations are influenced by business interruption insurance values — and loss-based coverage rests on them. It’s possible your business is currently paying insurance premiums to protect an income stream that simply does not exist anymore. And, if your insurance values reduce, your policy premium will reduce as well.

Are your insurance values still relevant?

The current crisis should encourage organizations to review their insurance values and evaluate the impacts to your employees, customers and ultimately your business outlook. Key factors to consider include industry, consumer demands, pricing and supply chain issues.
