Default Insurance

Default Insurance

Definition

Designed as an alternative to bonding contractors, default insurance is first-party insurance that compensates the insured in the event a covered contractor or subcontractor fails to fulfill its contractual obligations. Insureds are required to develop and implement rigorous contractor prequalification procedures and to retain a percentage of losses. Generally, this coverage is best suited for large projects or large general contractors with a significant percentage of subcontracted work and established relationships with subcontractors.
