Should I purchase an agent policy if I’m covered under my broker’s policy?

Many agents choose to purchase their own policy to cover activities not covered by their Firm’s policy, to reduce their retention (out-of-pocket claims expense), to ensure you’re protected should your Firm’s coverage lapse, or to offer CRES warranties, Seller’s Protection Plan, and other benefits to clients.

An agent policy also covers past sales, as long as you can show you’ve had continuous coverage through your Firm or your own policy. This is important when moving offices, since the E&O coverage does not normally follow you when you move, and your new Firm will not cover your previous transactions.
