Online Tool Can Help Businesses Determine Business Income and Extra Expense Needs


WARREN, NJ.- The Chubb Group of Insurance Companies has created an online tool to help businesses determine an appropriate business income/extra expense limit of insurance.

My Business Income from Chubb provides a consistent methodology for computing business income/extra expense limits through an easy, four-step process. It is available free to all businesses at

“Too many businesses underestimate the amount of business income/extra expense insurance they need,” said Paul L. Lewis, senior vice president of Chubb & Son and worldwide property, machinery and marine manager for Chubb Commercial Insurance. “Our online tool is designed to take the frustration out of calculating the amount of business income or extra expense insurance they should purchase.”

Following a covered loss, business income/extra expense insurance is designed to pay net profit (or loss), continuing expenses and extra expenses until operations are restored. “Business income/extra expense insurance helps businesses reestablish themselves after a crisis with a minimum impact on the income they normally generate,” said Lewis. “Having the right amount of insurance is critical to making sure businesses can survive an emergency, the loss of operations and the loss of income.”

Lewis said that in addition to purchasing business income and extra expense insurance, businesses should have a disaster recovery and business continuity plan that is up to date and tested regularly. Businesses that complete My Business Income Consultation also can order a free copy of Chubb’s Business Recovery Planning Guide on CD-ROM.

The member insurers of the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies form a multi-billion dollar organization providing property and casualty insurance for personal and commercial customers worldwide through 8,500 independent agents and brokers. Chubb’s global network includes branches and affiliates in North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Australia.
