Overhead Expense Insurance
An Overhead Expense (OE) insurance policy helps ensure that business owners can protect their business if a disability prevents them from working. Overhead Expense insurance reimburses an owner for business expenses incurred during a disability.
This insurance helps cover the day-to-day operational expenses of the business, such as rent, utilities, salaries, insurance premiums, and other fixed costs that continue even when the business owner or key employee is incapacitated.
Overhead expense insurance is a crucial risk management tool that business owners should consider to ensure the business’s financial stability and continuity in the face of unexpected disabilities.
