General Aggregate Limit Overview:
What Is a General Aggregate Limit?
A general aggregate limit is the maximum limit of insurance payable during any given annual policy period for all losses other than those arising from specified exposures. Under some commercial general liability (CGL) policies, the general aggregate limit applies to all covered bodily injury (BI) and property damage (PD) (except for injury or damage arising out of the products-completed operations hazard) and all covered personal and advertising injury. When paid losses in these categories reach the specified general aggregate limit, that limit is exhausted and no more losses in any of those categories will be paid under the policy. In other words, once the general aggregate limit is paid out, the only coverage remaining under the policy would be for products-completed operations claims—which are paid out of a separate aggregate.
