All products are underwritten by The Hanover Insurance Company or one of its insurance company subsidiaries or affiliates. Coverage may not be available in all jurisdictions and certain coverage may be provided by a surplus lines insurer. Surplus lines insurers do not generally participate in state guaranty funds and insureds are therefore not protected by such funds. Please refer to the actual policy issued for complete details of coverage and exclusions. For more information about The Hanover visit our website at www.hanover.com.
