Peace of mind
Umbrella and excess insurance are both types of liability insurance that provide additional coverage beyond the limits of an underlying policy.
Excess insurance provides additional coverage in the same way as the underlying policy, by paying out claims up to the limit of the policy. For example, if a business has a general liability policy with a limit of $1 million and an excess liability policy with a limit of $5 million, the excess policy would only pay out if a claim exceeds the $1 million limit of the underlying policy. Umbrella insurance, on the other hand, provides broader coverage than the underlying policy. It can cover liability claims that are not covered by the underlying policy, as well as provide additional coverage beyond the limits of the underlying policy.
