Insuring Your Home Business

If you have recently started your own business and work out of your home, you'll probably need to upgrade your insurance program. At-home business owners often make the mistake of assuming that their homeowners policy covers their business equipment. In fact, your homeowners policy may include little or no coverage for your business property and business liability exposure. You also should consider the need for business interruption insurance, workers' compensation coverage, and business automobile coverage. Finally, you should examine your need for life, health, and disability insurance.
