Learn about important details in your coverage

When you purchase an Allstate Business Insurance policy, you'll receive a Policy Declarations. This document "declares" the choices you've made for your policy, such as deductible amounts, coverage limits and any optional protection you may have purchased.

You'll receive a new Policy Declarations each renewal period, which is typically every 12 months. You should always read through your renewal documents to make sure you're up to date on the latest features of the policy, any changes in premiums or other vital information.
