NEW YORK--Oct. 24, 2008--AIG Construction Risk Management(R), a unit of AIG Commercial Insurance, today introduced enhanced coverage for commercial contractors that increases liability limits available for primary insurance and restructures minimum premium requirements to better align primary insurance programs with participation in construction wrap-up programs.

AIG Construction Risk Management now offers limits for qualified contractors on primary commercial general liability policies of up to $3 million per occurrence with $5 million for general aggregate and $5 million for products completed operations aggregates available. The availability of these limits offers clients greater efficiency in meeting insurance requirements and greater uniformity in claims response from AIG's construction claims professionals. In addition, AIG Construction Risk Management now offers a coordinated approach to minimum premiums for contractors' practice policies issued by AIG companies. The program applies to contractors who sponsor wrap-ups with AIG Construction Risk Management.

"Today's contractors need greater flexibility in building their insurance programs. Our enhancements offer realistic solutions for large contractors and their wrap up projects," said Daniel Conway, President, AIG Construction Risk Management.
