FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
E & O
What does E&O insurance do?
Errors and Omission (E&O), also known as Professional Liability insurance protects your company from potential losses when you responsible for errors in your service or the failure of your work to perform as promised in your contract or on your license. E&O Insurance coverage includes legal defense cost- even if the allegation is baseless.
Do you have the Title Agency specialized E&O policy to protect your company?
It is human nature to be imperfect. In our Title Agency Industry, we know that sometime the office is extremely busy, yet being Title Agents, all the fine details must be accurate and complete. Not all E&O polices are created equal. Protect your growing Title Agency with an E&O policy that is specialized to cover your unique services of Title, Abstracting, Closing Services, and Escrow Services. Here are SSIS, we represent all insurance markets offering Title Agent E&O. We shop all available insurance markets for you every year to assure you are maximizing the coverage available with competitive rates! Never just rubber stamp your renewal.

What does Wire Fraud / Cyber Liability do?
Wire Fraud / Cyber Liability insurance provides protection for your agency in the event there is a cyber breech of the Private and Personal Information (PPI), stored in your database. This helps cover the costs of the recovery of the data that was breeched whether the data is lost, held for Extortion or Ransom and more. Vital to this coverage is Social Engineering and Invoice Manipulation. Added as endorsements to the Cyber Liability policy, Social Engineering and Invoice Manipulation are the leading cause of cyber theft and wire fraud in the title industry. We can help cover outgoing wires (Social Engineering) and Incoming Wires (Invoice Manipulation) in the event of a compromised email with a Title Agency Specific cyber policy.
What happens when the criminal is within your own staff?
The Fidelity Bond or Crime Policy will protect your Agency from Employee Dishonesty or Employee Theft of money or securities. For our Title Agency Industry, we place a Form 15 Financial Institution Bond (FIB). This FIB will protect your Escrow Account as well as your Operating account from bad actors within your company staff. Many Title Underwriters require this coverage as part of contractual requirements.
What if I have my Fidelity Bond/Crime Policy added on to my General Liability?
Please also note, not all Fidelity or Crime Polices are the same. Many of these polices were designed for retail type businesses and will exclude coverage for the Escrow Account when applied to a Title Agency. Therefore, it is vital to use an insurance professional that is experienced in the Title Agency Industry. We will only place a Form 15 Financial Institution Bond for your Fidelity Bond/ Crime Policy needs.
