Home Business Insurance

RLI’s Home Business Policy provides affordable coverage for those people who operate small home-based businesses.  Insureds often believe their existing homeowners or apartment-dwellers policy will cover any loss or damage to their business equipment, furniture and supplies in the event of fire, theft or other catastrophe, when in fact, those policies usually explicitly exclude coverage for any business exposures on their premises.  The RLI Home Business Policy, however, is not intended for all types of home business.  It is specifically targeted for over 100 retail and services risks operated from the insured’s residence and presenting minimal product liability, professional liability and/or off-premises exposures. Learn more.
