This program, administered by Alliant, provides employee theft including faithful performance of duty, forgery or alteration, and computer fraud coverage with the option of a $1M, $3M, or $5M limit of coverage excess the member deductible. When you consider your agency’s coverage limit, contemplate how much loss your agency can afford to absorb, what your agency does to prevent these types of losses, your agency’s previous experience with losses, and how it dealt with it/them.

The coverage includes:

  • Faithful Performance
