Errors and Omissions Insurance

Errors and omissions refer to mistakes, negligence, or discrepancies in a business’s accounting records, which can possibly be interpreted as fraud and lead to legal action. Business owners and executives have several legal and financial responsibilities that accompany their roles, and if they fail to fulfill these responsibilities by inaccurately reporting income, errors and omissions insurance will reimburse a business for problems arising from these fiduciary oversights.

As a business owner, you know how important it is to live up to your promises. Consumer trust is a key part of earning repeat business, which in turn helps to create a stronger, healthier, and more profitable company.

Errors and omissions claims have been trending higher in recent years, with multiple‑million dollar lawsuits being filed more frequently than ever before. Accordingly, most businesses need to have appropriate coverage amounts to be sure they're protected if a large claim is filed.

What E&O Insurance Covers

Policies can vary, but most forms of errors and omissions insurance cover the following. Note that some industries don't need all of the coverage mentioned below, while others may need additional coverage because of the nature of their operations. Financial Strategies, Inc. agents will help you determine which coverages are best for you.

  • Claims and Damages: These are one of the major sources of potential loss that your company faces. E&O protection on claims can reimburse you for any payouts you may have to make as a result of such claims being filed.
  • Defense Costs: Whether or not you win a case, your attorney is going to expect payment. E&O insurance can reimburse you for their fees, allowing you to hire professional support without worrying that it will be too expensive for you to afford.
  • Employees, Temporary Staff, and Independent Contractors: You may be liable for the actions that anyone associated with your business takes—whether or not they're an employee. This part of the policy protects you if they make a mistake.
  • Negligence: Often considered one of the most important parts of E&O coverage, negligence coverage can reimburse you for problems like making a mistake while giving advice or failing to complete a job. Whatever the cause of the problem, ensuring you're covered will help protect your business if something goes wrong.

Errors and omissions policies payouts vary among companies depending on the possible severity of financial mishaps. If you're not sure how much of a cap your business should have in each category, call one of Financial Strategies, Inc. agents today and ask them for more information. You may need to increase your policy cap as your business grows, and we can help you decide when it's time to raise the limit.

What a pleasant and honest gentleman. Isaac won my trust over immediately and he began to guide me on the path of determining that my retirement plan wasn't just a dream, but a very plausible reality.

Donald H., Levonworth
To whom this may concern, as I have done banking with mutual savings for quite some time. I had the pleasure of using one of the banks many resources. I was helped by Steven Tarchala with Health Insurance needs and obtaining a policy at my affordability. It has been three months now and I have used the insurance numerous times. I just wanted to let someone know what a wonderful outstanding job this young man sis. I believe he is a valuable asset to the bank. This young man I believe went above and beyond to help me with my needs. I have personally thanked Steven but I would like the people who need to know at the bank that this man is outstanding.
