FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DEFINITION OF OCCURRENCE / GENERAL
An “OCCURRENCE” is the accident that produced
the Bodily Injury or Property Damage to one or more
claimants. The most the insurer will pay for a single
“OCCURRENCE” is $1,000,000. An aggregate limit is the
maximum dollar amount your insurer will pay to settle
your claims. Often the limit is referred to as an annual
aggregate limit, which is just the total amount your insurer
will pay in a single Policy Period. EXAMPLE: If there is a
GENERAL AGGREGATE limit of $2,000,000 and there
were THREE $1,000,000 Separate OCCURRENCES, the
maximum payout would be $2,000,000. This would also
exhaust the Policy Limit. However, with the GENERAL
AGGREGATE Limit as “NONE” the same payout would
be $3,000,000 and the policy limit would NOT be
exhausted. This is an added benefi t for being a member of
the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA).
