Lockton Affinity has launched LATITUDE, a new insurance program to help smaller government contractors protect employees working overseas.
LATITUDE’s insurance coverage is tailored for government contractors with 20 to 100 employees who want their foreign insurance bundled into a single program for their businesses. LATITUDE provides overseas coverage for government contractors working in engineering, facilities management, information technology consulting and life support services providers. Latitude also provides foreign coverage for government contractors in food service, housekeeping, janitorial services, and light construction such as electrical, heating, carpentry, and mechanical.
Government contractor insurance under LATITUDE includes the required Defense Base Act coverage as well as employer’s liability, medical evacuation and repatriation services. Additional coverage includes general liability and automobile liability, business travel accident, and kidnap and ransom insurance.
Lockton Affinity’s LATITUDE program is supported by Sara Payne, a 25-year veteran of Defense Base Act insurance programs, who is leading the launch. Lockton has teamed with a leading global insurance carrier to provide the coverage.
The LATITUDE team is offering contractors [and brokers] free program reviews to identify ways to improve their foreign insurance program.
