Description

PLEASE NOTE - THIS COURSE WILL ONLY SATISFY 1 HOUR OF THE 6 HOUR E&O REQUIREMENT TO QUALIFY FOR THE 10% PREMIUM DISCOUNT (WESTPORT AND FIREMAN'S FUND)

Agent E&O claims stemming from the placement of crop insurance are similar to other underlying coverages, however, the unique nature of the crop program can create additional exposure for agents. This class will explore some basic background and information on the common crop policy, important deadlines, crop insurance forms, as well as crop insurance policy provisions and appeal procedures. It will use E&O claim scenarios to show where E&O claims may occur along with risk management tips. The goal of this information is to help agencies avoid E&O claims and reduce an agency's potential liability exposure if faced with an E&O claim. While this module cannot prevent all E&O claims being made against an agency, recognizing where errors or omissions could occur, as well as utilizing the risk management tips outlined, should provide the agency with tools to effectively defend itself against such a claim, reduce exposure and better serve customers.

This one-hour class is designed to help agents:

  • Understand the areas that can create E&O exposure with the placement of crop insurance.
  • Highlight dates and forms that are important when placing coverage, including risk management tips.
  • Offer a crop risk management checklist to help agents avoid potential E&O claims.
