Pennsylvania business insurance requirements

State laws affect which business insurance coverage you need. These policies are required everywhere in Pennsylvania, from Philadelphia to Erie.

Workers' compensation insurance

Pennsylvania state law requires that all employees are covered by workers’ compensation insurance, regardless of whether that person is performing full-time, part-time, or seasonal work.

Workers' comp covers medical bills for work-related injuries and illnesses, and provides disability benefits for injured Pennsylvania workers. Most policies include employer's liability insurance, which covers legal costs if an employee blames their employer for an injury.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Pennsylvania must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy covers the cost of accidents involving work vehicles.

Pennsylvania’s minimum requirements for auto liability insurance are:

  • Bodily injury liability: $15,000 per person / $30,000 per accident
  • Property damage liability: $5,000 per accident
  • Medical benefits: $5,000

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA), as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to commercial general liability insurance or a business owner's policy (BOP).
