The Safe Deposit Rider is comprised of two Insuring Agreements, which may be purchased separately or jointly. Insuring Agreement A - Liability of Depository covers losses the financial institution becomes legally obligated to pay for loss of customer’s property and includes defense costs. Insuring Agreement B - Loss of Customers’ Property covers the loss, damage or destruction of customers’ property by burglary or robbery.

Claims Examples
  • A bank employee allows access to a safe deposit box to an unauthorized individual, who steals the customer’s property. The customer sues the bank to recover the value of the lost items. The bank’s legal defense costs are covered, as well as the resulting liability to the customer, up to the limit of liability.

  • A bank is burglarized over a weekend. The safe deposit boxes are drilled and all of the contents removed. Agreement B would cover the contents of the safe deposit boxes. Currency and coins would not be covered unless Agreement B was purchased “with Money.”

  • Coverage for both agreements extends to self-storage boxes outside of a vault at a higher deductible.
  • Coverage may be purchased “with Money” or “without Money.”
  • There is no duty to defend. Alternatively, this coverage may be purchased on a “duty to defend” basis under the Combination Safe Depository Policy.
