What is meant by claims made based cover in liability insurance?
It means that if the loss is discovered in the period that the policy is in place, the the claim will be considered, if the event that caused the loss occurred anytime after the retroactive date mentioned the policy.
Usually liability policies are issued on a claims made basis, and claims can be reported upto the expiry of the policy or an extended reporting period if it is mentioned.
What is retroactive date?
The retroactive date can be before the policy start date. This simply means that the policy will cover for events that happen on or after the retroactive date. When renewing a liability insurance policy, the retroactive date needs to be kept in mind to ensure that there is no lapse in coverage.
