Q: Is our church committee & Deacons covered under D&O?
A: There would be coverage under the D&O, if the directors or officers are appointed or elected and authorized with the responsibility to manage and/ or direct the affairs of the church, while acting solely and exclusively in their capacity for the church. Thus, if they are not a separate group of the church with a different corporation number, and working under the direction of the church, they should have coverage under the D&O.
Q: Another church wants to use space in the church we insured, for church services once a week, what should the church do?
A: The church will need a certificate of liability naming our church as an additional insured.
Q: Is there coverage under Work comp for the wife of an individual who is paid by the church to clean the church, if she helps him and sustains injured?
A: There is no coverage under the work comp for the wife, if she is not paid by the church, however, if she volunteers to clean, and sustains an injury, there might be coverage under the med pay, the liability part of the policy.
Q: Why has our policy premium increased?
A: Florida has taken a rate increase. Everyone’s policy premium has increased.
Q: When can I expect the certificate of insurance that I requested?
A: We will make sure you receive it once we receive approval from underwriting.
Q: Can we rent our church van to other churches?
A: No. The company has underwritten the policy based on the information that you provided at the time of application and therefore the rental is not anticipated in the rating or the policy.
Q: Can we use our van to help other churches or groups and just charge a fee?
A: This is not an a visible practice. If you are charging a fee you would be considered livery and could fall under the common carrier laws and be required to have special licenses and permits. If you wanted to help another organization, give them a donation and help them rent the vehicle they need to support their event.
Q: Is social media really that important for my church, private/charter school or nonprofit organization?
A: A thousand times YES!!! Whether or not you think your church, business or organization needs social media outlets, your customers are connected via social media in some way, shape or form. Social media is VITAL to connecting with them!
Q: Social media overwhelms me. I don’t know where to start. Can you help?

A: Yes, depending on your needs we can offer individual plans or plans that are tailored for small groups.
Q: Do you offer Dental & Vision plans?
A: Yes, we offer dental & vision plans as stand-alone plans or as an option with your health insurance.
Q: I would like life insurance, can you help?

Q: Our church group is going on a mission’s trip to Mexico. Is there insurance to protect us on this trip?
