Assignment of Benefits Provision in Homeowner’s Policy is Enforceable

David Adelstein - Florida Construction Legal Updates

When it comes to property insurance claims, particularly those under a homeowner’s insurance policy, an insured will oftentimes assign its benefits under the policy to a restoration contractor. The request for the assignment may likely be prompted by the contractor that does not want to perform the work without the assignment of benefits. The assignment of benefits (also known by the acronym “AOB”) allows the third-party contractor (as the assignee of the insured) to sue the insurer directly for benefits under the policy associated with the restoration work.
