A certificate of insurance is a document which provides evidence of insurance. Other parties routinely require evidence of insurance coverage for various types of contracts. Examples may be for the lease or rental of premises, rental of a vehicle or for special events. When agreements, leases or contracts require evidence of insurance, the agency should request review by their Assistant Attorney General for compliance with those obligations.
An agency may submit a written request for a certificate of insurance to the STO Insurance Division, to the attention of Luke Reed, Underwriter. The request must contain the name of the person within the agency requesting the certificate, the telephone and fax number, the name and address of your State agency, a brief description of why the certificate is needed and the name and address of the organization requesting the verification of insurance from the agency. The agency representative can e-mail this to Luke Reed, email@example.com and Muriel Turner at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by fax to 410-974-2865.
Please allow at least 5 business days for processing.
