The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every industry, from small retail businesses to enterprise organizations. The insurance industry is not immune to these effects, and business, auto and life insurance policies are likely to undergo significant changes as a result. 



On Thursday, April 30th at 12:30 PM ET, we held a webinar to discuss how coronavirus has impacted insurance policies — and what changes we might see once the worst of the pandemic has passed. Specifically, we covered:

  • How to interpret business policy terms and coverages in a post-COVID reality
  • Forthcoming changes to personal and commercial insurance policies
  • Strategies that can help you be better prepared to manage your insurance coverage
