Check if you’re likely to be covered
Clients with business interruption (BI) insurance can now refer to a policy checker provided by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Based on the outcome of the FCA test case, the online tool is a general guide aimed at assisting policyholders to see if their coronavirus-related BI losses are likely covered.
You can access the policy checker here. You will need to have your insurance policy schedule on hand.
According to the FCA website:
“The policy checker helps you to check whether the wording in your policy is the same as, or very similar to, the 21 policies in the ‘representative sample’ considered by the courts in the FCA’s test case.
“If so, the High Court and the Supreme Court rulings provide important guidance on the way your policy should be interpreted and on the strength of your claim, based wording of your policy.”
