Apply the Property to Policy Wide scope to an underwriting rule

Using Classic Lines, you can create underwriting rules with the trigger in the Property section and the effect in the Policy Wide section of the quote. When you create rules with this new scope, they’re applied to the underwriter enforcer (automatic renewals), the admin builder, and both versions of the quoting wizard.

Note: The new rule scope won’t allow syncing between properties as the effect.

Available rule options:

  • Line items
  • Sublines
  • Fields
  • Questions
  • Limits
  • Categories

Note: If a client wants to use the new rule scope with their existing underwriting rules, they need to open a support ticket.

Business cases

The Builder, where you build a policy, has two sections:

  • The Primary Exposures section is for coverages by property.
  • The Policy Wide section is for coverages that apply to the entire policy, including every property.

For a Businessowners policy, liability coverages that apply to the entire policy may differ by the business class code of the property. Underwriting rules can now look at the Primary Exposures section where the business class code exists to add the correct liability coverages in the Policy Wide section.
