COVID-19 update

Markel continues to respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

These are unprecedented and uncertain times, and Markel's top priority remains taking appropriate measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and their families, our trading partners, and the communities in which we live and work. We are doing these things as we continue to serve our clients and policyholders.

We have activated our business continuity plans across all of our operations globally to further ensure our ability to serve the needs of our stakeholders. All of our actions are guided by the recommendations of health authorities and government officials globally, regionally, and locally.

In an effort to assist our business partners and vendors while we are all working from home, we’ve added resources to our web site to help answer your questions. Of special interest are answering operational questions like “As a Markel US policyholder, how do I file a claim?” or “How do I make a premium payment?” You may also want to read about state-issued directives and emergency orders which we continually update on our site. If you are a supplier, our COVID-19 resources and information page provides details about how we’re processing payments during the pandemic.

Markel has been a successful and strong company for the past 90 years. Thank you for your support, and please reach out if there is anything further we can do for you and our insureds. We will provide further updates as warranted.

COVID-19 resources and information

In the spotlight


During these unsettled times, we are so grateful for those on the front lines. Much appreciation to the people – nurses and doctors, truck drivers and sanitation workers, first responders, utility and grocery store employees, and countless volunteers – who are providing care for the sick and essential services for everyone. On behalf of all of us here at Markel, thanks for everything you do.

We're guided by the Markel Style
