Difference in Conditions (DIC)

Sometimes an all-risk policy can exclude certain perils that your client may need covered. For example, floods are typically not listed exposures in a homeowner policy. However, if your client lives in a flood zone, their assets encounter different conditions and require supplemental coverage. Having the right coverage complement your clients existing policy can help limit the financial strains related to these conditions.
