Best Practices for Certificates of Insurance
A publication of the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas
The processing of requests for certificates of insurance is arguably the most troublesome task performed by insurance agencies today. The task can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. If not handled properly, the process can create significant E&O exposures for the agency. And in most agencies, even those that issue thousands of certificates each year, the job is done without additional compensation to the agency. This document provides a look at best practices for certificates of insurance.
