People have homeowners and auto insurance however, if your customers arent protected by a personal umbrella policy, they could be putting their house or financialassets at risk. An RLI Personal Umbrella Policy is a low-cost policy that substantially increases overall liability coverage beyond the basic protection provided under homeowners and auto insurance policies.

In Louisiana, an insureds teenage son was driving his younger sister and her friend to the movies. He lost control of the vehicle, left the road and hit a telephone pole. The friend permanently lost the use of her right arm and suffered severe brain injuries resulting in permanent brain damage.

The claim was settled for more than the insureds auto policy would cover. Without the Personal Umbrella Policy, the insured would have had to pay $1 million out of their own pocket.

This policy is designed for small businesses which are operated out of a person's home. An individual who conducts such an enterprise may find it difficult to find appropriate and affordable insurance through a conventional commercial lines approach. Yet, the homeowner's policy on the residence normally excludes any liability arising from "business pursuits." This product is specifically targeted for small retail and service businesses operated from the insured's residence that present minimal product liability, professional liability, and/or off-premises exposures.
