What is a Business Owner's Policy (BOP)?

A Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) combines common business coverages (General Liability and Property Insurance) into one convenient policy. It’s a great fit for smaller businesses and provides the flexibility to add additional coverages based on your business’s needs. See below for common coverages and features.

What's Covered?

General Liability

Protects your business by covering damage or injury to others that you or your employees are legally responsible for. For example, if someone slips on a wet floor in your building and breaks their arm. Coverages typically include:

Commercial Property

While liability covers damage to others, Property covers things you own, lease or rent from damage, loss or theft including property that you do not own but is is in your care.


Sometimes an optional coverage, crime insurance protects your business from fraud, forgery and theft.

Loss of Income

Helps pay your bills, expenses and employees in the event your business is forced to temporarily close due to a covered loss.

Optional Coverages
Cyber Liability

Protects your business against the costs of data breaches and other cyber security issues.

Hired and Non Owned Auto

Covers vehicles your business rents, leases or borrows or when employees use personal vehicles for company business.

Employment Related Practices Liability

Covers the employer from wrongful acts arising from the employment process, such as wrongful termination and discrimination.

Contractors Tools & Equipment
