Comparing URB Forms to ISO Forms in Commercial Lines

Mishell Magnusson, CIC, CISR, CPIA, AAI, FIPC
KJM Consulting & Training, Inc.

This seminar is intended to discuss the differences between URB forms and ISO forms in the areas that affect all agents and brokers on a daily basis when dealing with the company that uses these forms.

For this discussion, we will focus on the affects of "Auto" versus "Mobile Equipment"; as well as four exclusions on the commercial property - Water, Ordinance or Law; Earth Movement; and Concurrent Causation.

Is "Replacement Cost" coverage enough and what does that even mean? In the 1990’s the ADA (American with Disabilities) law came into play.  The Federal ADA law may require enhanced public access such as wheelchair ramps; installation of elevators; and modified restrooms to accommodate the handicapped, to name a few.  We will explore how the property policy does (or doesn't) respond to these exposures.

Recent economic fluctuations and increased unemployment have prompted many people to become creative about ways to generate an income stream.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are over 18 million home based businesses in the United States, producing over $427 billion in income.  Home businesses have expanded past the home catalog party or demonstration show.  In addition, it is estimated that over 35 million households have active home offices (homebusinessmag.com).  Understanding the ins and outs of insuring home businesses is essential for today's insurance professional.
