Pros

There are many benefits to a guaranteed renewable endorsement to your auto policy. Benefits remained unchanged for insureds up to the age of 65. With the non-cancellable rider, insureds can make policy changes and disability benefits payout as originally signed even if income levels change during the course of the policy. Guaranteed renewable policies ensure the business retains insurance as long as they pay their premiums.

Cons

The auto policy featuring the endorsement is often more expensive than a standard auto policy. Without the non-cancellable endorsement, only the insurance company can make policy changes not the insured. In addition, a conditionally renewable policy offers less benefits to the insured and gives the insurance company the ability to change the policy conditions annually.

Speak with your insurance agent to see if a guaranteed renewable endorsement car insurance policy is right for your business.
