Many insurable things are tied to inflation and therefore require periodic increases.  Life insurance – Cost of living increases such as food, clothing, and transportation.  Property insurance – rising real estate values and cost of replacing materials.  Health insurance – Cost increases in physician hospital, and other medical-related items..

16 Chapter 19, Section II Copyright © 2003 by South-Western Business Interruption Insurance Business Decision As the owner of a successful business, you would probably purchase an additional type of property insurance coverage known as “business interruption insurance.” This insurance protects the profits that a company would have earned had there been no problem. Business interruption insurance covers damages caused by all types of perils such as fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, lightning, or any other disaster except floods and earthquakes. This insurance pays for “economic” losses incurred when business operations suddenly cease. These include loss of income due to interruption and additional expenses incurred such as leases; relocation to temporary facilities; overtime to keep up with production demands; recompiling of business, financial and legal records; and even the salaries of key employees.
