Alaska Business Insurance
Customized protection for your Alaska business
Alaska business owners should consider several types of business insurance to protect from the financial and legal problems that can result from things like a customer slip and fall or an employee injury on the job.
Employing over 137,000 people, Alaska small businesses are an important part of the state’s economy. These businesses are required by Alaska law to protect their employees with workers’ compensation insurance.
Getting the right coverages for your business, from a business owners policy (BOP) to workers’ comp, is simple with the Progressive Advantage® Business Program. Our licensed agents can help you customize a policy to your needs.

How much does business insurance cost in Alaska?
The cost of business insurance in Alaska is dependent on many factors, including your business’s coverage needs, location and size. For example, a business located in Juneau with two employees can expect a different rate than one in Anchorage with seven employees.
The most important factor to determining your business insurance rate is the type of work you do. Some professions are exposed to more risk than others and can expect to pay a higher rate because of it. For example, a tree trimmer who works high above the ground will have a different rate than a landscaper that works primarily at ground level.
