Common Church Insurance Questions
What Does Church Insurance Cover?
Problems can occur in places of worship at any time. These might be lawsuits, property damage, loss of possessions or other serious events. Any of these accidents might be costly, and since your church’s financial reserves are often limited, this coverage can prove instrumental in helping you cover the costs of these accidents. Therefore, your congregation can go on despite a temporary setback.
What Type of Insurance Does a Church Need?
Churches are a lot like other businesses, which is why many of their insurance policies will look a lot like the average business insurance plan. However, your benefits can include numerous more specific plans that are customized to address unique liabilities. Essential coverage you might need includes:
Property & Contents Insurance: If something damages physical property like your church building or possessions, then this coverage can help you repair or replace them.
General Liability Insurance: Covers the church in case its actions or negligence cause property damage or bodily injuries to other parties, like parishioners.
Commercial Auto Insurance: When the church owns vehicles, this coverage will provide the requisite physical damage, liability and other benefits to help it afford the costs of wrecks or other hazards.
Workers’ Compensation Insurance: If an employee gets hurt on the job, then they are often eligible for workers’ comp. It will provide them supplementary income during their recovery.
Counselors Protection (Professional Liability) Insurance: Church leaders will consistently provide advice and guidance. You can’t guarantee that something bad won’t occur, no matter how well-intentioned your actions. If it does, then this coverage can help your church compensate the affected person.
