Expense Limitation

Definition of "Expense limitation"

Ceiling on expense reimbursement allowance, as stated in New York insurance law, that an insurance company licensed in New York State can give its agents. This is one reason why a company that is admitted (licensed) in all states but New York may have a sister company doing business only in New York State. If an insurance company is not admitted in New York State, it can allocate greater expense allowances and commissions to agents, thereby attracting more of their business.
