What is the VRC?

What is the VRC?

Claims data for the Big “I” Professional Liability Program reveals that about 40% of claims involve failure to procure coverage and/or failing to adequately identify exposures. The Commercial and Personal Lines Risk Analysis Systems on VRC assist producers and CSR’s. How?

  • By helping to understand exposures of businesses in more than 650 different industries, including recommended minimum coverages.
  • By allowing them to create and print comprehensive questionnaires to collect the information necessary to complete ACORD applications.
  • By providing a comprehensive list of coverages with succinct definitions to enhance understanding at the point of sale.
  • By offering important customer file documentation in the form of a comprehensive checklist of coverages offered, accepted, rejected or not applicable which is signed by the customer and stored in the file.
