ACEC Business Insurance Trust

The ACEC Business Insurance Trust oversees a program that provides business and professional liability insurance coverage for participating ACEC member firms. The program offers policyholders tailored coverage along broad policy terms and conditions.

Program coverage includes automobile liability and physical damage; workers’ compensation; and the “Spectrum” package policy affording protection for buildings, business personal property, money and securities, business liability, equipment breakdown, computers and media. Catastrophe liability protection is available through umbrella coverage. The plan underwriter is The Hartford, and the plan administrator is Marsh USA Inc.

The Trust has authorized Marsh to make engineers’ professional liability coverage available to member firms. Neither ACEC nor the Trust endorses any one PLI provider. It is the objective of Marsh to offer a choice of providers for PLI coverage. The selection of underwriters may change from time to time.

Under the Deductible Assistance Program, the BIT may be able to defray all or part of your firm’s deductible for automobile or property claims if you are an ACEC member in good standing and participate in the BIT program. Once your claim is submitted and processed by the BIT’s carrier, The Hartford, you can request the return of your deductible amount up to $1,000 per claim.
