The high net worth carriers offer coverage up to $1M in limits to protect you from cyber fraud, cyber bullying, and cyber ransom.

Do you have staff that works on your premises or with you more than 40 hours a week? Accidents happen, this extension of coverage on high-end homeowners policies can provide workers’ compensation insurance for an employee’s medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation services that result from a workplace injury or illness. This type of insurance is a safety net that helps prepare you for an unexpected accident. In addition to helping cover medical bills and lost wages, workers’ compensation also assists with vocational rehabilitation services to help you get back to work.
ARC Personal Lines will advise where offering such coverage is mandatory and when it is advisable depending on the personal staffing situation you have.
A standard homeowner’s insurance policy usually limits the coverage amount available for personal belongings to as low as 50 percent of your home’s insured value. For many high-net-worth households, these lower limits may not be enough to properly insure your valuable belongings, especially if you live on the water or in a flood zone.
ARC Personal Lines provides high-value homeowners insurance policies with a flood insurance policy to cover floods and storm surge and can work with you to obtain personalized coverage for your home.( Link here to download a flood insurance application)
Excess Flood Insurance
Most homeowners who have flood insurance obtain it from the Federal Government’s National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), but policies tend to max out at $250,000. Therefore, if you own a high-value home that would cost more than $250,000 to rebuild, you may be required to buy excess flood insurance by your mortgage lender. An excess flood policy mimics an NFIP policy, so whatever your flood insurance covers, your excess flood insurance policy should also cover.
ARC Personal Lines provides experience and peace of mind with extraordinary claims handling for high-value homeowners. Clients can expect to receive a confidential risk analysis from our team of concierge underwriters.
