A certificate of liability insurance is a snapshot of your insurance coverage. Rather than fumbling through an entire policy, the basics of your policy are on a single page.  Your certificate will list your policy number and provider, type of coverage and limits, and the dates your policy is in effect.


Understanding Your Certificate of Liability Insurance

At first glance, your certificate of liability insurance can be difficult to read. The below definitions will clear up any misunderstanding you may have.  And if not, we’re only a phone call away to assist!

Certificate of Liability Insurance

  1. Insured.  This is one of the most important sections of your certificate.  Confirm that your name, or business name and any applicable DBAs, along with your address are correct as listed.
  2. Additional Insured and Subrogation Waiver.  Have you additionally insured others for your booth or market?  If so, an “X” will appear under the “ADDL INSD” column. Likewise, if a Waiver of Subrogation has been completed, an “X” will appear under “SUBR WVD”.
  3. Policy Expiration Date.  This is where we find our policy expiration date.  Stay mindful of this date to ensure you’re not operating without effective coverage.  The last thing you want is a claim that’s not covered due to an expired policy!
  4. General Liability Policy Limits.  For clients who have purchased general liability insurance, your policy limit will be listed here.
  5. Product Liability Policy Limits.  For clients with product liability insurance, your policy limit will be listed here.
  6. Additional Insured(s).  Likely the second most important section of your certificate.  This is where your additional insured individuals are listed.  As earlier with the “Insured” box, make sure the names and addresses of each person listed are accurate.
  7. Certificate Holder.  Take note of this section. A name and address in this box mean the individual listed will be notified if the policy is canceled or modified before its expiration date.  Many people assume the name here is an additional insured. Remember, any additionally insured individual(s) will be listed in the section above.
