Cover Your Clients with Big 'I' Personal Umbrella

Life can change in an instant. A personal umbrella insurance policy helps protect your clients against unexpected events that can wreak havoc on their family, finances and future.

The Big “I" Personal Umbrella program has the markets you need! Big “I" Personal Umbrella offers Big “I" members exclusive access to RLI's stand-alone personal umbrella. In addition, in special cases where RLI's broad coverage is not the correct fit, options are available through our alternative carrier partner, Anderson & Murison.

Read on to learn how our carrier partners can help cover your clients.

Preferred Market: RLI

RLI's PUP stands atop the existing homeowners and auto policies to provide an extra layer of personal liability protection for the insured and their household. With RLI's PUP program, the insured can maintain their auto or home coverage with any company they choose, provided they agree to maintain the mandatory minimum underlying coverage limits.

The RLI PUP may be written either in the name of an individual, in the names of both spouses, or in the names of two unrelated individuals as long as they reside in the same household. The insured's spouse and members of the insured's household who are relatives or are in the insured's care and custody are insured under the policy.

  • Limits up to $5 million available, with limits up to $1 million in New Mexico.
