Businessowners Policy (BOP)

Property insurance. Liability insurance. Business income insurance.

A businessowners policy, also known as BOP insurance, combines various insurance coverage with additional protection into one convenient package. If you’re not sure what coverage is right for your business, or have not considered a BOP, learn how a BOP insurance policy can protect your business.

Still not sure if you need a businessowners policy (BOP)?

Ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Is your business located outside of your home?
  • Do you have fewer than 100 employees and less than $5 million in sales?

  • Do you want to protect the investments you've made in your business?
