Workers compensation can be a large expense for small businesses. It’s not uncommon for small business owners, especially new business owners, to exclude themselves from coverage on their own company’s workers’ compensation policy to reduce the expense. The assumption is that their health insurance will cover any injuries they suffer while working. The truth is that most health insurance policies do not cover work related injuries. The benefit for lost wages provided by a workers compensation policy is often overlooked during this cost/benefit analysis. Most disability policies also exclude work related disability as well. Can you afford to go without health insurance and disability insurance when you are most at risk?

When it comes to cyber threats, many business owners, both large and small, are a target. Unfortunately, too many business owners take the approach that it’ll never happen to them or that their company isn’t big enough.

With the recent influx of news stories about serious data breaches, it’s not just the bottom line that gets impacted after a data breach.  Brand image, which can have lasting revenue impacts, can also be compromised.

While hacks affecting the largest businesses are often reported in the news, hackers can target any size business. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security reports that 31% of all cyber-attacks are directed at businesses with less than 250 employees.

As soon as they start learning to drive, whether your teen is starting with a learner’s permit or going straight to the license, you should inform your insurance company to have them added to your policy. This is usually much more cost-effective than placing them on their own policy, especially if you are a safe driver with a clean record. They will also be eligible for more coverage under your policy.
