Several Personal Umbrella Carriers to Implement Major Changes

​Recent announcements from several personal umbrella carriers outline major changes in coverage that will leave agents scrambling to find a new market for their clients. Big “I" members can turn to Big “I" Personal Umbrella for an easy and reliable solution.

For example, one major standalone umbrella carrier will begin requiring underlying auto liability limits of at least $1 million in some states and $500,000 in all others. That carrier will also require $1-million underlying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage limits when excess UM/UIM  is purchased. 

Other carriers, meanwhile, have announced that they will be non-renewing all their personal umbrellas nationwide.

During this time, remember you can turn to RLI Insurance —the Big “I"-endorsed standalone personal umbrella carrier—to find coverage with a reliable carrier that offers reasonable underlying limit requirements.

RLI allows auto limits as low as $100,000/$300,000 for many customers—$500,000/$500,000 limits are only required if there's a DUI in the household.  Excess UM/UIM coverage is also available nationwide. Underlying UM/UIM limits simply need to match the auto liability limits.
