Group Personal Excess Liability (GPEL) Insurance

Group Personal Excess Liability (GPEL) Insurance – also known as umbrella insurance – is an affordable way to protect you and your family against third-party liability lawsuits and claims, worldwide. Although you may have basic homeowner’s and automobile coverage, it often is not enough in the event you are sued. For example, settlements for car accidents, boating accidents or even a dog bite can cost millions of dollars. Help secure your assets with GPEL. Coverage is available from $2 million to $50 million.

GPEL provides you (or other eligible members described below) with additional protection if your liability in a lawsuit exceeds the insurance coverage provided under a primary insurance policy. Coverage assumes that you carry primary insurance and pays only after your primary insurance policy limits are exhausted.
