Suzanne Roell-Carson, Real Estate Agent Smart Choice Realtors

Combination of several policies with each adding an additional layer or limit of coverage above the limits of the policy that comes before it. For example, Policy A adds $100,000, then Policy B adds $200,000 and then Policy C adds $300,000, for a total of $600,000. In some instances a business firm cannot obtain the total coverage it requires from a single insurance company. Thus, the business may have to buy several policies from different companies in order to acquire the total needed.
