Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Argo Group

We Are Here For You

During this unprecedented time, Argo Group is working hard to limit disruption to customers. There is currently no impact to normal customer service operations. Argo is committed to providing the products and services our partners and clients are accustomed to, even as we take steps to ensure the safety of our employees.

We are ready and able to continue business as usual. Please visit our Business and Claims pages for more information.

We are monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus and have instructed our teams to work from home for the foreseeable future, restrict all international travel and limit domestic travel until further notice.

Lloyd’s of London has closed their underwriting room; therefore, our Syndicate underwriters will be trading remotely and will either utilize PPL as the main placement method or revert to the Lloyd’s Emergency Trading Protocol, which has been distributed by Lloyd’s recently.

Please reach out to your underwriters with any questions, and connect with us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for the latest news and insights.

Our thoughts go out to all those impacted by COVID-19. We hope you continue to prioritize your health and the health of those around you.

Small Business Paycheck Protection Program

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act expands the availability of small businesses loans under Section 7(a) of the Small Business Act to include the new Paycheck Protection Program.

Generally designed for businesses with fewer than 500 employees, Paycheck Protection Program loans may be used for payroll costs, mortgage interest, rent, utilities and interest on certain other debt. The program will open for applications on April 3, 2020, and be available through June 30, 2020.

Determining Eligibility

Businesses should contact their banks immediately to determine if the bank is an eligible lender and most importantly to get in the queue for approval.
