Without using hyperbole, thousands of certificates of insurance (COIs) are i
ssued every day, and again without hyperbole, most of them are issued improperly. In fact, your agency may have issued an improper certificate as recently as this morning.

What is it about certificates of insurance that can get an agency in trouble? If there were just one or two things, it would make your job a whole lot easier. But in reality, there are about 27 different ways a COI can get you in trouble. OK, so 27 isn't an exact number, but you get the idea. A "simple" COI is a potentially dangerous weapon against your agency.

Now, as if the COI problem wasn't enough, there's a NEW monster or "gotcha" in town, the memoranda of coverage or memoranda of insurance (or something like that). Upper tier contractors have or are beginning to discover that the COI is what the COI is and not much can be done to or with a COI to give them comfort about the coverage in the referenced polices; thus, they have created this new monster to get YOU in trouble. What agents are now being asked to do is complete a separate document regarding what is and is not covered in the certificated insurance policies. Departments of Insurance don't seem to have acted on these yet – so the agent is being forced (by their own clients) to reduce the policy to a bunch of check boxes. Do you see a problem here? I bet your E&O carrier will.

There are a lot of rules, statutes, and theories swirling around COIs so you have to be sure you're dotting all the "i"s and crossing all the "t"s. If you're not, go ahead and call your E&O carrier – they'll want to be at the ready. And this new abomination you are being asked to complete should truly raise concerns.

We look forward to discussing the traps and dangers in COIs and extra-COI documents.

Please note that CE is not offered for this webinar.

*Webinar transcript will be emailed to all registrants within four weeks of the live event.

This session digs into the
possible dangers of
certificates of insurance and
discusses things like:


 What is the problem with issuing a COI with no holder?

Should the COI include all the requested Additional Insureds?

Who should produce the COI?

What wording should
NEVER be used on a COI?

How do you handle and manage a request for a Memoranda of Coverage/Insurance?



Consider presenting this webinar conference style for the entire agency to benefit.










Business Income - Are You Sure You Protected ALL the Insurable Income?
(Register here for the October 11, 2017 business income webinar)

Christopher J. Boggs, CPCU, ARM, ALCM, LPCS, AAI, APA, CWCA, CRIS, AINS

Business Income (BI) is the most important property coverage available. Businesses exist to make money; without income, the business ceases to exist. BI ensures there is a flow of income until the business is once again operational.

In this webinar, attendees learn the hardest lesson surrounding BI - how to complete the business income worksheet (CP 15 15). This worksheet has frightened insurance practitioners for decades - but no more. With this information, class completers will be much better prepared to advise their clients.

This session details:

  • Completion of the Business Income Worksheet (CP 15 15);
  • The difference between "insurable" and "compensable" business income;
  • How to insure the additional loss of income that occurs once the business reopens; and
  • How to properly insure the exposure created by dependent properties (contingent business income).
*Webinar transcript will be emailed to all registrants within four weeks of the live event.

Business Income (BI) is the most undersold property coverage, maybe because it is the most misunderstood and scary. Remember, businesses exist to make money – and if there is no money coming in, the business ceases to exist.

In reality, BI is quite simple – once the basic concepts are understood.

In this session, we detail:

  • The four KEY BI concepts;
  • The major BI policy provisions; and
  • How to calculate coinsurance and coverage amounts.
*Webinar transcript will be emailed to all registrants within four weeks of the live event.

Contractors Protective Professional Indemnity: Filling Gaps You Didn't Even Know You Had

Coverage Part A of the Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy is limited in scope, extending coverage to claims arising out of only bodily injury (BI) and/or property damage (PD). Couple Part A's limited scope with the CGL form's absolute pollution exclusion ("f.") and expensive coverage gaps are created for most contractor risks.

Contractors' Professional and Pollution Liability is the contractor's coverage solution. Often referred to as either the Contractors Pollution and Professional Insurance, the Contractor's Protective Professional Indemnity coverage, or simply "CPPI," this multi-peril form specifically addresses and closes most of the coverage gaps created by the limited breadth of Coverage Part A combined with the pollution exclusion (it even addresses some coverage gaps in the business auto policy).

This session details this incredibly important coverage. When done you will:

  • Understand the coverage gaps that create the need for this coverage;
  • Understand how the policy works; and
  • Learn who needs this coverage.

When (and Why) Partial Losses Become Total Losses
Christopher J. Boggs, CPCU, ARM, ALCM, LPCS, AAI, APA, CWCA, CRIS, AINS

We do a bad job explaining the concept of "replacement cost." We tend to tell clients they will get new stuff for old junk – which is partially true; but partial truths get you sued.

One roadblock to replacement cost is building codes – or what we insurance practitioners refer to as ordinance or laws. Unendorsed policies offer only a VERY limited amount of coverage for the increased costs to rebuild due to these ordinance or laws. When your insured is forced to pay these additional costs out-of-pocket, they are going to be MAAADDD!

We detail the coverage problem, the coverage gaps, and how to fix these problems in this session.

Insureds CANNOT depend on the unendorsed commercial property policy (CPP) to cover ALL rebuilding expenses. Few commercial structures fully meet local building code requirements; and the older the building, the further out of compliance the building is. Non-compliance with local building codes can cost your insured many thousands of dollars following a major property loss.

Essentially, local building codes can turn a partial real property loss into a total loss. Following a "major" loss, building code officials can require the undamaged portion of the structure to be demolished and removed from the site and the new building to be built in compliance with all local building codes. The unendorsed CPP only pays the cost to remove and rebuild the damaged portion of the building. There is NO coverage for any of the other expenses related to the undamaged part.

Attendees in this session learn:

  • The coverage gaps in property policies making Ordinance or Law Endorsements necessary;
  • Who promulgates and who enforces local building codes;
  • What constitutes "major" damage;
  • The details of various ordinance or law endorsements; and
  • How to develop coverage limits for each coverage part.
