Payroll and Rent Expense Protection (PREP™)

Be prepared with PREP

Payroll and Rent Expense Protection (PREP) insurance coverage was designed to help American businesses maintain their most valuable assets – their employees and places of business – during periods of pandemic-induced economic distress.

In simple terms, when the next wave of COVID-19 or a similar pandemic strikes, and if a government-mandated statewide “shelter in place” order is issued, which impacts an employer’s monthly operating income, PREP can be used by an insured employer to recoup up to 50% of up to two months of its payroll and rent expenses.

Vanbridge, an EPIC company, is one of only two brokers who can offer this product – it is not otherwise available in the marketplace today.
