What is a tail or tail coverage?

Tail coverage or Extended Reporting Period Terms provide 1, 2, or 3 years of continuous E&O coverage after your Retroactive or Prior Acts date. This is not renewal coverage, but an extension of the currently bound E&O coverage.

Tail coverage is frequently used if you are leaving or retiring from real estate or selling your business.  It covers you for claims that may occur from your prior transactions after you no longer work in real estate or no longer own a real estate business.
