A rider is an extra protection added to an insurance policy in exchange for paying a higher premium to an insurer.
An insurance rider is a modification to an insurance policy. Also known as an endorsement, it allows you to adjust the terms of your insurance to protect your business without having to buy a whole new policy.
Riders are necessary because general liability, commercial property, commercial auto, and other forms of small business insurance don’t allow for much customization other than increasing or decreasing coverage limits or deductibles. Riders are a way to modify your protection to fit your specific business requirements without having to buy a whole new policy.
You can adjust your small business insurance with riders in many different ways, including:
Since virtually every type of business insurance has multiple riders or endorsements available, there are numerous opportunities to customize your protection. Check with your licensed Insureon agent to discuss your specific needs and options.
Not necessarily. If a rider duplicates coverage you already have in another policy or is too expensive, you may want to forgo it.
