I.B.C. Felonious Assault Insurance

There are over 30,000 convenience store robberies each year. 

Don't be a statistic.

Understanding The Importance


Store owners face the horrible reality of a store employee being injured or killed. Workers’ Compensation pays expenses such as medical for injuries and a percentage of salary if an employee is killed. In most cases, Workers’ Compensation is not enough!!

Independent Buyers’ Co-op along with Breeden Benefit Group have created a Felonious Assault Program. The program will cover owners and employees.

If death occurs during a Felonious Assault, the plan will pay the family $400,000. If an injury occurs during a Felonious Assault, the plan will pay $2,500 per month while in the hospital and $385 weekly while recovering. This program was created for convenience store associations throughout the United States. Over $15,000,000 in financial relief has been paid to families. A family member cannot be replaced, however $400,000 will assist with future expenses.

The Felonious Assault Program will launch on 4/01/2020. Premiums will be deducted from rebate checks on a quarterly basis. Members have the opportunity to decline the program.
