Business Interruption Insurance

Tri-State Insurance Agency: Business Interruption Insurance to Keep You Operating

The fall of 2012 was an eye-opener for many businesses affected by the destruction that Super Storm Sandy caused on the Eastern seaboard, including in communities throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Many businesses realized the importance of having business interruption insurance after their businesses were forced to shut down by this widespread catastrophe. A business interruption (also called business income) policy provides income during the time (up to a certain period) you have to close or significantly scale back due to physical damage to your property.

Furthermore, when a disaster strikes, property damage is not the only issue with which you have to deal. There are also related expenses associated with temporarily relocating and renting business equipment to replace items that were damaged or destroyed. A business interruption policy that is combined extra expense coverage can cover these additional expenses.

Your policy can be crafted to provide income for a set time after your business reopens but has to rebuild its customer traffic. Some business income with extra expense insurance will also cover advertising costs and extend pay to designated employees.
