Snow Insurance, Cost Containment / Income Stabilization Coverage

If your entity has revenues or expenses that fluctuate with the weather, such as the amount of snowfall, a cost containment / revenue stabilization insurance policy should put you at ease.  We offer snow insurance policies that address the risk of either too much or too little snow and/or rain, as well as too hot or too cold.

  • Cumulative Snow Coverage.  This coverage provides for a claim if a specific amount of snow occurs, or fails to occur, over a specific time period.  Policies are also available that pay a claim based on a lack of snow accumulation over a specified timeframe.
  • Snow Event Coverage.  This coverage provides for a claim if a specific number of snowfall events (storms) occur over a specific time period. If an insufficient amount of snowfall events occur over a certain period of time, we have available policies that will pay that claim.
  • Other Options.  We will work with you to design a policy to meet your own unique requirements, including policies that address the occurrence of extreme snow events, freeze, heat, excess rain, drought, and wind just to name a few.  Call us to discuss your unique situation.
