When doing construction or contracting work, you'll sometimes need to provide proof of insurance coverage. This might be because…
- A client requires you to have General Liability Insurance coverage before offering a contract.
- A state regulatory agency necessitates you having a license or permit bond from an insurance company before they can issue the actual license or permit.
- Your state requires you to verify your Workers' Compensation Insurance coverage.
In order to provide proof of insurance coverage, you'll need to show a Certificate of Insurance, which is the official document that your insurance agent provides. It certifies that your construction or contracting business has the necessary coverage.
You can list certain parties as "Certificate Holders," which means they will automatically be notified when your policy is updated. This can be beneficial when working with the same clients over the years.
