Should an accident or incident occur, you will need to have information readily available so you can make a claim through your small business insurance provider. Most business insurance companies provide policyholders with an insurance card, but knowing how to navigate it can be helpful.
To get a filing started, you will need to provide your agent or a representative with your policy number, which will be listed on your insurance card. Chances are you won’t be able to memorize this number amid your other tasks as a business owner, so keeping your insurance card in your wallet or tucked away in a drawer where you can grab it with ease is a good idea.
Your insurance card will also have information regarding the expiration date of your policy, which you will want to know or be able to check on to avoid a lapse in coverage when switching providers or renewing your commercial insurance.
Most insurance cards also have contact information, such as the phone numbers for filing a claim, customer service, etc. There will also likely be your insurance providers website and mailing address.
