Certificate of Insurance Request Form
IMPORTANT NOTE: As of January 1, 2012, the Texas Senate has passed into law and implemented Senate Bill 425 governing the issuance of Certificates of Insurance in the State of Texas. This new law has affected how certificates of insurance may be issued as well as how they may not be issued – which may have an impact on your request, The full bill (with the most important portions highlighted) can be found here. In summary this law states that:
No agent may issue ANY Certificate of Insurance that is not on a form officially approved by the Texas Department of Insurance;
WHAT THIS MEANS… This means absolutely no ‘customer specific’ or proprietary forms unless officially approved by the Texas Department of Insurance.
Issue a Certificate of Insurance that in any way alters, amends, or implies any change to the actual coverage of the policy or misleads as to the actual coverages and rights provided by the policy;
WHAT THIS MEANS… This means, without exception, absolutely no ‘special wording’, required ’30-day cancellation’ notices, or other similar modifications unless they are already included in the policy, regardless of who is requesting the certificate for whatever reason. Under most policies, certificate holders are NOT afforded any contractual right to notices of cancellation. This right is ONLY afforded to the Named Insured and/or possibly Additional Insureds or Additional Interests.
