Blanket Crime Policy

Definition of "Blanket crime policy"

Coverage usually provided as part of the special Multiperil insurance (smp) policy, generally replaced by the commercial package policy, through the attachment of the Blanket Crime Endorsement. Perils covered include dishonesty of a business's employees; loss of money both while inside as well as outside a business's premises; lost money orders; forgery due to the acts of a depositor; and counterfeit paper currency. Since this crime policy is so comprehensive it is said to provide the insured with a blanket of coverage. This policy has largely been replaced by the commercial crime coverage form.
