Rider Definition

The "Legal-Ease" Glossary
Rider

Additional insurance protection you can purchase separately and "tack on" to your primary insurance policy.

A standard primary policy usually doesn't offer much room for modification (outside of choosing coverage amounts and deductibles), so a rider is a way for small-business owners to customize their policies to meet their unique needs.

For instance, you can add a Commercial Auto Coverage rider to your General Liability Insurance. Sometimes a rider is referred to as an "endorsement."
