It is increasingly common for other organizations and/or people (third parties) to request some evidence that the fraternity/sorority or chapter has insurance coverage in place. The form that confirms that coverage is, in fact, in place is called the Certificate of Insurance, and it shows your limits and coverages.
In addition, it is also very common for you to receive a request from a lender requesting that you provide evidence that you carry property insurance. Banks often require you to list them as a mortgagee or loss payee on your policy for property for which they provide a loan. Companies from whom you lease equipment, such as a copy machine vendor, also often request proof that you are carrying insurance to cover any damage to their equipment.
A Certificate of Insurance details your limits and coverages, and you’re likely to need a copy for more than your own information.
If you’re planning an event, you can fill out the Event Certificate form to request proof of coverage. Event Certificates typically take at least two weeks to process, so be sure to request a certificate well in advance of your event.
If you need proof of coverage for your own records or for loan applications and rentals, you can request a Non-Event-Specific Certificate.
To request a Certificate of Insurance for an event, please fill out the request form at least two weeks prior to your event.
To request a Certificate of Insurance for a university, mortgagee, bank, or loss payee, please complete the Non-Event Certificate of Insurance Request Form.
