Filing Claims on Multi-buyer Insurance Policies: Avoid these mistakes!
Your Multi-buyer insurance policy provides valuable protection when some invoices go unpaid and you have to file an insurance claim with Ex-Im Bank. Unfortunately, some claims are denied because the insurance policyholder failed to do something required under the Policy. Please help us to help you avoid these mistakes. Here are four common reasons that multi-buyer insurance claims are not paid.

There are many lenders available that offer our trade finance products, including the possibility of your own local lender. If such a lender exists, we encourage you to first discuss trade finance options with that lender, as it is most familiar with your business.
City/State Partners Initiative
Ex-Im Bank has formed partnerships with 42 state and local government offices and private sector organizations to bring its products to the exporter at the lowest cost to the American taxpayer. Ex-Im Bank has resources in the form of loans, guarantees and insurance. State and local representatives have the staff and the knowledge of the local market and how to reach it. By pooling strengths in a local-federal partnership, both accomplish what neither could do alone, creating high-quality U.S. jobs and expanding the local tax base through exports
