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.

Of special interest are answering operational questions like “How do I file a claim?” or “How do I make a premium payment?” Many states have issued directives and emergency orders. Please click here for state-specific directives. We also know that our vendors and business partners have questions while we are all working from home. For information about claims, customer service, and related matters, please click here.

We also are mindful of the concerns of our vendors and business partners. For information about processing payments while we are all working from home, please click here.

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.

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
