What Is Business Interruption Insurance?
Business interruption insurance, or business income insurance, is a type of commercial insurance that can provide financial protection against losses resulting from business shutdowns. It can also supplement your other commercial insurance policies to help you build a comprehensive insurance portfolio. Business interruption insurance may be available as part of a business insurance package along with commercial property insurance and general liability insurance.
What Is Business Interruption Insurance Primarily Designed to Cover?
Business interruption insurance can help pay for several costs related to a temporary closure of your operations caused by a covered event (e.g., property damage from fire, wind or lightning). Common losses and expenses it can cover include:
- Lost revenue
- Standard operating expenses, such as:
- Mortgage, lease or rent payments
- Relocation costs
There are several types of business interruption insurance, and other coverages may be available. Work with your agent to discuss options, exclusions and limits. We can also provide more information on when coverage takes effect after a covered event and how long coverage lasts (i.e., the restoration period).

Each business’s insurance needs are unique. When you are assessing your needs, you can consider several factors, such as how long it would take to recover after a shutdown, your gross earnings and projections and your ongoing expenses.
