Bank Insurance Program

At CBIZ, we understand that since 2008 banking has faced a "perfect storm" of financial challenges, including the housing market collapse, expanded regulatory enforcement and the financial stress of eroding margins.

Our Exclusive Process for Banks

Free Proprietary Policy Analysis
Our proprietary, comprehensive Policy Analysis incorporates a review of all language in the bank's current policies - not just a review of endorsements. Language embedded within a policy can expose a bank to under-insured or uninsured risk, so we carefully review this language with an emphasis on inclusions, exclusions and definitions. Banking industry benchmarks are applied, and insurance industry terminology guides are assessed to examine for implied results, contingencies and dependencies.

Bank Analysis Report
Typically 60 days before renewal, we develop an overview of your business plan which addresses any current challenges upfront. This is then provided to each insurance company underwriter along with requirements for specific coverages, limits, retentions and premiums. 

Conference Call
Generally 45 days prior to renewal, we host a conference call between your Senior Management and multiple insurance company underwriters who want to compete for your business. The call is directed by one of our team members with deep experience in the banking industry.

We present renewal options to your Senior Management 30 days in advance of your policy expiration date. This timing allows Senior Management to make their recommendations to the Board in advance of the renewal.

Ongoing Support
Our team is available for Board presentations and questions. our bank customer service team is the best in the industry and eager to help with claims, changes and questions.
