What are Insurance Businesses?

Insurance businesses sell coverage to you to protect you, your property, or your business. When you sign up for an insurance plan, it pools everyone’s contribution collectively, so it helps to cover costs in case someone has to pay for damages. This way, when you owe money for damage to your property, you will have to pay less than if it was just on your own.

Insurance companies will also charge for premiums. When you file a claim, you will be required to pay this premium which protects the insurance company from filing for false claims.
