Insurance for Religious Organizations

Insurance for Religious Organizations

A religious organization, like a church, mosque, or synagogue, is focused on serving their congregation and community, along with a higher power. The thought of insurance for religious organizations may not have even crossed the minds of local religious leaders. Yet, it is hugely important in ensuring they can continue to serve that mission. As an insurance producer, you have an opportunity to help religious organizations do their important work without worrying about liability.

The Need for Insurance for Religious Organizations

Insurance for religious organizations protects against risk, which can show up in many different ways. Property damage is a common concern for religious organizations. Vandals and criminals frequently target places of worship and other disasters can strike, too. Without proper insurance in place, the religious organization is left paying for repairs and replacements.

With all of the people who come in and out of religious organizations, including kids, volunteers, and staff, liability insurance also protects against any bodily injuries sustained on-site or caused by members of the organization. For example, a woman in Illinois received $675,000 after falling on church stairs that were not up to code. That recovery was paid out by the church’s insurance company.

Professional liability is also important if a professional member of the organization is accused of wrongdoing. Allegations of abuse have long been a problem for religious organizations and such cases can be costly. One 2019 news article links a wave of sexual abuse lawsuits – following a change to the statute of limitations in many states – to potential payouts of over $4 billion.

Prime now provides communicable disease coverage as an optional add-on to your insurance policy. Other companies are tightening guidelines while we’re opening our eyes, providing solutions, and willing to offer communicable disease coverage to ensure our insureds don’t have any blind spots/gaps in coverage. Religious Organization Insurance should include this specialty coverage so the insured can operate his or her organization with true peace of mind.

When you can offer your clients insurance for religious organizations, you are helping to ensure that they can continue their activities without fear of liability, risk, and what it could cost. You can also expand your business by writing for more risk classes.
