When a client hires your firm for an advertising project or your landlord sends you a lease renewal, they may ask to see a proof of insurance or a Certificate of Liability Insurance.
What is a Certificate of Liability Insurance?
Insurance Certificates are one-page documents made by your insurance carrier to show you're covered and detail the main features of your policy. Insurance Certificates usually show…
- Brief notes on what is and isn't covered.
- The limits of your policy.
- When your policy expires.
- Any third-party contractors or additional insureds also covered.
Many businesses and third parties will want to see proof of insurance coverage to sign contracts. For instance, you may need to show proof of insurance when…
- A client contract requires you to have a certain amount of Professional Liability Insurance to pay for lawsuits about project errors.
- A client contract requires you to have General Liability Insurance with coverage for an advertising injury.
If the situation calls for it, you'll typically attach a copy of your Insurance Certificate to the contract or lease for a landlord.
