    To be covered under a loss sustained form, the occurrence causing the loss must take place during the policy period, and the named insured must discover the loss during the policy period or during the extended discovery period that applies.
  25. When must a loss occur and be discovered in order to be covered under a discovery form (assuming no retroactive date applies)?
    To be covered under a discovery form, a loss must be discovered during the policy period or during the extended discovery period that applies. The occurrence causing the loss may have occurred at any time (unless a retroactive date applies).
  26. Why is the choice between the loss sustained form and the discovery form more significant to employee theft coverage than to other crime coverages?
    Employee theft losses are often not discovered until months or years after they occur, whereas other types of crime losses are usually discovered soon after they occur. The principal differences between the discovery and loss sustained forms usually come into play only when there is a significant delay between the occurrences and their discovery. Thus, the choice between discovery and loss sustianed forms is more significant for employee theft coverage than it is for other crime coverages.
  27. How long is the extended discovery period in the discovery form?
    In the discovery form, the extended discovery period lasts for sixty days (one year with regard to employee benefit plans).
  28. How long is the extended discovery period in the loss sustained form?
    In the loss sustained form, the extended discovery period lasts for one year.
  29. What is the basic purpose of both of the Loss Sustained During Prior Insurance conditions?
    The basic purpose of both of the Loss Sustained During Prior Insurance conditions is to provide coverage under an in-force crime policy for a loss that would have been covered under a prior crime policy. One conditon applies to prior insurance issued by the current insurer, and the other condition applies to prior insurance not issued by the current insurer.
  30. What is the most that the insurer will pay under the Loss Sustained During Prior Insurance Issued by Us or Any Affiliate condition?
    The most that the insurer will pay under the Loss Sustained During Prior Insurance Issued by Us or Any Affiliate is the highest limit of Insurance applicable during the course of the loss, whether the current limit or the limit during any prior policy year during which the loss occurred is higher. The current policy's deductible always applies.
  31. What is the most that the insurer will pay under the Loss Sustained During Prior Insurance Not Issued by Us or Any Affliate condition?
    The most that the insureer will pay under the Loss Sustained Duirng Prior Insurance Not Issued by Us or Any Affiliate is the lowest of the limits of insurance applicable during the course of the loss. The current policy's deductible always applies.
  32. How does the addition of a retroactive date endorsement affect the discovery form?
    When a retroactive date is added to the discovery form, the insurer does not cover acts committed before the retroactive date stated in the policy.
  33. How does the Joint Insured condition affect crime coverage for employee theft losses in which more than one insured is named on a policy?
    The Joint Insured condition provides employee theft coverage to every insured with respect to employees of any other insured under the policy.
  34. Identify the duties required of the insured after discovering a loss or situation that may be covered under the crime policy.
    • The insured is obligated to perform these duties after discovering a loss or situation that may be covered under the crime policy:
    • - Notify the insureer as soon as possible.
    • - Submit to examination under oath if the insureer's request it.

    • - Give the insurer a detailed sworn proof of loss within 120 days.

  36. Summarize how the government crime forms differ form the commerical crime forms on each of these points:
    a. Employee Theft insuring agreements
    b. Territory condition
    c. Termination as to Any Employee condition
    d. Additional exclusions
    e. Indemnification condition
    • The government crime forms differ from the commercial crime forms in these ways:
    • a. The government crime forms contain an optional additional Employee Theft insuring agreement that applies on a "per employee" basis instead of the usual "per loss" basis.
    • b. The Territory condition in the government crime form does not include Canada and is therefore limited to the US and Puerto Rico.
    • c. In the government crime forms, the Termination as to Any Employee condition applies to any employee whose theft or other dishonest act is discovered by the named insured or any official or employee authorized to manage or control the insured's employees. The government crime forms therefore encompass a broader group of employees whose knowledge is imputed to the insured.
    • d. The government crime forms contain 2 additional exclusions, which eliminate coverage for loss caused by 1) any employee required by law to be individually bonded, 2) any treasurer or tax collector.
    • e.The government crime forms contain an Indemnification condition, which states that the insurer will indemnify any of the insured's officials who are required by law to provide faithful performance bonds against loss resulting from theft committed by employees serving under these officials.
  37. Give three examples of financial losses covered by a kidnap, ransom, and extortion (KR&E) policy.
    • A KR&E policy can cover many types of losses. Here are examples:
    • - Loss resulting from the payment of ransom because of kidnapping or extortion threat.
    • - Loss of money while in the custody of a messenger during transit for the purpose of being delivered as payment for ransom.
    • - The cost of returning kidnapping victimes to their home country after being released by their captors.
  38. Paraphrase the "mainfest intent" requirement commonly found in employee dishonesty forms.
    To meet the manifest intent requirement of an employee dishonesty form, the employee committing a dishonest act must have acted with manifest intent to cause a loss to the insured and to obtain financial benefit for the employee or for another person or organization that the employee wants to receive the benefit.
