Coverage provides liability insurance when member-owned premises are used for special events or short-term activities. Examples include weddings, art festivals, parades, block parties, yoga classes, and member-sponsored events such as job fairs, carnivals, and swap meets. Members administer the program, accept funds, and issue certificates of insurance online with Alliant Insurance Services, with whom the California JPIA contracts for this program. There is no deductible, and the member is added as an additional insured, if entered on the certificate. Because it is automatic, members do not need to obtain an additional insured endorsement. Liability limits are purchased in $1,000,000 per occurrence increments. Medical payments are also available with limits of $5,000, with the option to purchase $5,000 in additional limits.
