Excess Liability

Excess Liability  


You may have auto, homeowners, boat or RV insurance, but is it enough?

Excess liability is the additional protection you need in case a judgment against you exceeds the liability limits of your primary policies.


The more you have, the more you have to protect. Determining the amount of coverage that is right for you depends on the value of your current assets and your income potential. You may want to ask yourself:

  • Do I want to protect my hard earned assets in case of a liability occurrence that I or a household family member may have caused or appear to have caused?
  • Do I have exposures that put me at greater risk of a liability loss such as: multiple drivers living in my household, a pet, a pool, a watercraft, a secondary home, a recreational vehicle or a snowmobile to name a few.


Who is Insured:

The following are insured under the Group Personal Excess Liability coverage.

  1. You (Named Insured).
  2. Your Spouse if a resident of your household.
  3. Relatives who reside in your household.
  4. A person while using your automobile with and within the scope of your permission.
  5. A trust which owns Trust Property insured by underlying insurance and this policy.
  6. Your Domestic Partner; and
  7. Any other person or organization but only with respect to the legal responsibility for acts or omissions of any individual named insured or relative.


IMPORTANT NOTE: To avoid a gap in coverage for which you may be financially liable for, you must maintain the minimum underlying limits required on the excess liability policy. Please refer to the excess liability enrollment page for the minimum required underlying limits by exposure.
