Access to two stand-alone personal umbrella markets: RLI (preferred) and Anderson & Murison (alternative). Protect yourself from “failure to offer” E&O claims; offer a personal umbrella to every client.

Just ONE Company!
Having access to top carriers that specialize in serving affluent clients sets you apart from the competition. Big "I" Markets connects you to two of the best for high-value clients.


Offering personal umbrella coverage to every client is essential. That's why the Big "I" developed a customizable PUP declination form that you can use to document that you've offered umbrella coverage in your client files. This is a top-clicked resource among Big "I" members, and with good reason. Offering your client coverage can lead to a sale, and when it doesn't, documentation that it was offered can provide protection for your agency in the event of an agency E&O claim. For clients who choose to invest in umbrella coverage, here are some policy features from our standalone umbrella partner RLI:

  • Limits up to $5 million available ($1M in NM)
  • Excess UM/UIM available in all states.
  • The insured can keep their current homeowner/auto insurer
  • New drivers accepted - no age limit on drivers
  • Up to one DWI/DUI per household allowed
  • Auto limits as low as 100/300/50 in certain cases
  • Competitive, low premiums for increased limits of liability
  • Simple, self-underwriting application that lets you know immediately if the insured is accepted
  • E-signature and credit card payment options
  • Immediate coverage available in all 50 states plus D.C.
Given the success of the PUP Decline form, our team worked with RLI to add a similar resource for Home Business. Use our customizable Home Business declination form when discussing potential home business risks with your clients. Top business classes for this market include:
  • Residential Inspection Services
  • Teacher/Tutors
  • Photographers
  • Accounting Services
  • Bakers
  • Computer Consultants
  • Interior Decorating
  • Jewelry (Costume)
  • Art Gallery / Art Studio
  • Crafts
