Inland Marine Insurance

It is optional that you have your devices insured, but we strongly recommend that you purchase insurance for devices and equipment that are taken to field trips or handled frequently by students. 


The Inland Marine insurance provides coverage similar to the Major Property Policy, 
but offers a lower deductible of $50.00 per occurrence. To opt into this supplemental 
insurance, please notify Risk Management with a schedule of property items, brief description, 
serial or ISU tag number, replacement value (not to exceed $2000), and index code in which to 
have it billed to.  Unlike Major Property coverage, Inland Marine insurance is billed directly 
to the department.   Personal property used for ISU business such as laptops, cameras, etc., 
can also be included on your department’s schedule with the approval of the department dean 
or head.   

Limit:  
$2,000 per occurrence. Any loss above this amount is covered by the Major Property policy.  

Agency Deductible:  
$50.00 per occurrence
  
What is Covered:  
The coverage is the same as the Major Property policy, with the addition of the exclusions listed 
below. Most departments use this coverage to insure property subject to theft or breakage, 
property which is frequently transported, or small pilferable items.  

Exclusions:  
Following are items not eligible for Inland Marine coverage:  
1) Real property or buildings  
2) Automobile or vehicles licensed for the road.  
3) Mobile equipment of any nature (mobile equipment is any motorized equipment not licensed 
for highway use)  
4) Consumable properties  
5) Property held in inventory (Items discovered missing after inventory check)  
6) Coverage limitations on the Major Property policy also apply.  

Premium Determination:  
The premium is based on the schedule submitted by each agency. The current rate is $ .35 
per $100 of value with a three-month minimum insurance period and a $25 minimum premium 
per department. The maximum value that may be to declared for any single item is $2000. 
Therefore, for items valued $2,000 and over, enter $2,000 for the replacement cost value  

Departments may add or delete items from their schedule throughout the year.  Premiums are 
charged to departments yearly in August.
