Crop Agent Errors & Omissions
Errors and Omissions (E&O) insurance is a form of professional liability coverage designed to protect an insured against allegations of mistakes made while performing the duties associated with his/her business. The policy includes coverage for both defense costs (e.g., attorney fees, court costs, etc.) and settlements or judgments. Intentional wrongdoing is specifically excluded.
Rockwood Programs has seen several insurers decide to exit the crop agent insurance E&O product line. We developed our product to meet the need of crop insurance specialists who are finding it increasingly difficult to secure professional liability coverage.
- Multiple limit and retention options.
- Carrier Insolvency coverage
- Cyber liability protection (subject to separate sub-limit)
- Availability of Supplemental Defense Limits via endorsement
- Flexibility to enhance coverage to include incidental Life/Accident & Health and Financial Products placements.
The insurance is written through certain underwriters at Lloyds. A.M. Best assigns an “A” rating on these carriers for their financial stability and claims paying ability.
