Perils

Perils are the cause of loss. In the Perils screen, you can manage the perils that will appear in the Loss Cause dialog box in the Provider Administrator portal or the Loss Cause dropdown list in the Agent portal. To access the Perils screen, select Components from the Claims menu, and then select Perils from the Components dropdown list.

By default, ISO perils are added to the Perils list. ISO perils are named and coded perils. If you are using ISO APLUS as a vendor, it is recommended that you use ISO perils.
