What is run-off insurance and do you need it?

28th September 2023The Society of Will Writers0

Run-off insurance, also known as “extended reporting period” insurance, provides cover for claims that may arise after a professional has retired or ceased trading. This insurance cover is essential for professionals who may face claims relating to work they completed before their retirement or end of trading.

Claims can arise years after your work is completed, and if you do not have run-off insurance in place, you could be liable for the costs of defending against these claims.

For example, if a will you wrote is found to be invalid due to errors or omissions, the beneficiaries or family members affected may file a claim against you, even if you have retired or ceased trading. Without run-off insurance, you would be responsible for the costs of defending against this claim, which can be significant.

The length of time that you need run-off insurance will depend on your individual circumstances.
