Understanding Exclusions in Insurance Policies

Exclusions are provisions in an insurance policy that eliminate coverage from the contract. When it comes to homeowner's insurance, it is worth considering a title insurance policy if you don't have a lender's policy. This type of policy can protect you from financial disaster if someone files a claim against your new home. Many insurers offer discounts when both the lender's and homeowner's policies are purchased at the same time.

Under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) of 1974 (Public Law 93-53), you are not required to purchase title insurance from any particular company. It is important to survey different companies when looking for both types of title insurance and make sure that the company you select meets your standards and those of your lender. It is also important to consult your policy for an exact definition of the meaning of the term in your policy. Insured liability coverage for people who have suffered bodily injury or property damage due to acids, fumes, toxic chemicals, waste materials, or other contaminants is known as environmental pollution liability.

Fraternal insurance is a form of group coverage or disability insurance available to members of a fraternal organization. When you take out a mortgage, the lender seeks protection for your investment by requiring title insurance from the lender against losses that result from claims filed by others against your new home. Unauthorized reinsurance is reinsurance granted to an unauthorized company in the state of residence of the reporting company. Conditions are requirements specified in the insurance contract that the insured must meet in order to receive compensation.

Comprehensive personal liability is comprehensive liability coverage for exposures that arise from residential facilities and the activities of individuals and family members. Event cancellation coverage provides protection for financial losses due to the cancellation or postponement of a specific event due to weather or other unexpected cause that is beyond the control of the insured. Allocated risk is a government fund established to cancel businesses rejected by companies in the standard insurance market. Industrial life insurance, also called debit insurance, is insurance under which premiums are paid monthly or more frequently, the nominal amount of the policy does not exceed the established amount and the words industrial policy appear printed in prominent letters on the front of the policy.

A minimum premium plan is an agreement under which an insurance company will manage claims for a fee and insure against the significant claims of a self-insured group. Gross premium is calculated as net insurance premium plus fees, operating fees and miscellaneous fees. Legal regulations also regulate how insurers must establish reserves for invested assets and the claims and conditions under which they can request the transfer of credits for reinsurance. If a policy has a coinsurance clause, a coinsurance percentage will appear on the policy statements page.

Workplace liability coverage provides liability insurance for employers that covers wrongful dismissal, discrimination, or sexual harassment of the insured's current or former employees. Loss of use insurance is a policy that provides protection against loss of use due to damage or destruction of property. The Insurance Regulatory Information System (IRIS) is a benchmark creditworthiness assessment system for the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) and state insurance regulators established in the mid-1970s.
