Marine Insurance Program

Workers’ Compensation, ability to quote USL&H and Marine Employers Liability (MEL) on one policy

Based on the nature of your clients’ business, we may be able to quote a Workers’ Compensation policy that includes U.S. Longshore & Harbors (USL&H) coverage and add a Maritime Employer’s Liability coverage endorsement that is designed to cover the daily dangers that your maritime clients face. In addition, we can provide access to a Workers’ Compensation policy with incidental USL&H coverage for State Act marine-related risks. Our Marine staff has more than 40 years of experience in the maritime industry and our program features flexible underwriting, in-house binding authority, and low minimum premiums.
