Most homeowners policies have very limited coverage for earthquake damage--excluding direct loss from earth movement but covering loss by a subsequent fire, explosion, breakage of glass, or theft. As a result, if you live in an area prone to earthquakes, you may want to purchase additional coverage with earthquake insurance.

Professional liability coverage protects you if you're sued for the work or advice provided by your business.

In more legalistic terminology, professional liability insurance covers you for things like breach of duty, negligence, misstatement, omissions, and wrongful acts.
A single procedure or trip to the hospital can fill your mailbox with stacks of bills. These can come from hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, emergency rooms, labs, and many others. The stress involved with handling all of this paperwork can be almost as overwhelming as the illness or injury itself. If your medical bills start to pile up faster than you can pay them, don't wait for a crisis to occur before doing something about it.
Group disability insurance is a single disability policy that covers many people (a group) who have a common interest or association, such as an employer, a trade, or a school affiliation. When your business offers a group disability plan to its employees, it must choose a specific range of coverage, a funding method for the plan, and the eligibility criteria for participants. The cost of group coverage is often less expensive than the cost of individual coverage, making it an attractive benefit for employees.
