Learn about your business auto insurance declarations
When you purchase a business auto insurance policy from Allstate, you'll receive policy declarations. This document "declares" the choices you've made for your policy, such as deductibles you've set and any optional protection you may have purchased.
You'll receive new policy declarations each renewal period, which is typically every 12 months. You should always read through your renewal documents to make certain you're up to date on the latest features of the policy, any changes in premiums or other important information.
