What Does Business Interruption Insurance Cover?
If a covered event forces your business to temporarily close its doors, business interruption insurance can help cover certain expenses, including:
- Lost revenue
- Loan payments
- Business taxes
- Relocation expenses
- Mortgage or rent
For example, if a fire leaves your business property uninhabitable, your business interruption policy may reimburse you for the expenses listed above. Other covered events may include hail, wind damage, or vandalism. Be sure to review your insurance policy for specific coverages.
The Restoration Period
Typically, these policies have a restoration period. This is the period that your policy will cover operating expenses and lost income while you work to reopen your business.
For most policies, there is a 48 to 72-hour waiting period before your policy begins reimbursing you. Then your restoration period begins. Restoration periods may be as long as 12 months, but be sure to review your policy to understand when your restoration period starts and ends.
