The insurance is generally written to cover costs and damages from claim allegations of failure to provide professional services where a service fee was charged. Your policy is tailored to meet your business’ specific needs.

In the present era of advanced technology, your business can conduct its operations quickly, easily and effectively.

Commercial Crime Insurance protects your business from financial losses resulting from dishonest acts committed by both employees and nonemployees. It covers various risks including employee theft, fraud, computer fraud, burglary and robbery.

At CBIZ Insurance Services, our risk professionals can help you develop a tailored crime program to address the specific risks and exposures of your industry or business.
