Commercial Crime Insurance Coverage

The more successful your company, the more it may attract the attention of dishonest people — whether employees, associates or outsiders.

Farmers® agents are small business owners, too, and understand the challenges of protecting your company from people with negative intent. They can show you insurance coverage options to help address a variety of risks like these — low-tech and high-tech:

Risk:

While reviewing bank statements from the last few months, you discover someone wrote checks worth thousands of dollars to a vendor you don’t use.

Coverage:

Employee dishonesty coverage can help if employees steal from your company — whether on their own or with the help of outsiders.


Risk:

A fire destroys several important documents — and there aren’t any copies from which their data can be retrieved.

Coverage:

Valuable papers and records coverage can help with the expense of recreating important documents.


Risk:

Your deposit bag is stolen from a messenger on her way to the bank — and contains more cash than usual because it’s your company’s busiest time of the year.

Coverage:

Money and securities theft (external) coverage can help if money and securities are stolen while they’re in the care of anyone covered by your policy.


Risk:

You accept what appears to be a perfectly legitimate money order. A few days later, your bank tells you it was counterfeit and immediately debits your account.

Coverage:

Money order and counterfeit paper currency coverage can help if you accept counterfeit bills or money orders as payment.


Risk:

Although addressed to your business, a batch of newly printed checks are delivered to someone else — who uses several of your checks to pay for expensive electronic equipment.

Coverage:

Forgery and alteration coverage can help when checks are fraudulently written, altered or signed.


Risk:

A hacker gains access to your computer system and steals your customers’ credit and debit card information.

Coverage:

Cyber liability and data breach response coverage can help you investigate a breach and manage negative effects on your company’s reputation. It also helps you notify consumers and provide them with credit monitoring service for a period.


Some popular business insurance options

Crime coverage is just one component in a full menu of business insurance options available from Farmers. Your agent can also discuss coverage options for other possible risks like:

Risk: Coverage:
Risk:

A client is at your office for a meeting when he trips on a carpeting seam and sprains his wrist in the fall.

Coverage:

Business liability insurance can help with medical and legal costs, and damages resulting from lawsuits if you’re legally liable for an injury on your premises.

Risk:

Your shop must close for several weeks to repair damage from a fire — you aren’t able to earn business income until you open again.

Coverage:

Business income coverage can help when a covered event interrupts your company’s income.

Risk:

While making deliveries in a company van, your employee causes a collision injuring the leadership team of a technology start-up. The limits of your commercial auto policy won’t cover their salaries while they recuperate.

Coverage:

Business umbrella coverage can help by adding an extra layer of liability coverage. It begins when the limits of an underlying liability policy are reached, and can be purchased in $1 million increments up to $10 million.
