"Security First"

Defense Base Act Insurance


In the present economic and political environment, the area of Defense Base Act (DBA or Act) coverage has never been more important. Today, as more and more U.S. based organizations enter into relationships with the U.S. government for a variety of projects involving the military for public works, such as the rebuilding of war-torn countries and for the overall national security of the country, DBA coverage is vital -- and mandatory. Safe Passage International is uniquely qualified to work with you to navigate through this complex area. Our insurance company and its affiliates use a dedicated claims staff with offices around the world with the ability to respond quickly to any claims falling under this Act.

Background: Established in 1941, the primary goal of the Act was to cover workers on military bases outside the United States. The Act was amended to include public works contracts with the government for the building of non-military projects such as dams, schools, harbors and roads abroad. A further amendment added a vast array of enterprises revolving around the national security of the U.S. and its allies. Today, almost any contract with an agency of the U.S. government, for work outside the U.S., whether military in nature or not, will likely require Defense Base Act coverage.
