What do you need to know about Insurance Documents?

by Robert White

Insurance is a financial process established to protect people from loss or uncertainty in business or human life. It provides safety and security to the person who is insured, and insurance documents are designed to eliminate or decrease the risk of loss to life and property. In the case of life insurance, a contract is made between an insurer and a policy holder to pay a sum of money upon the death of an insured person. When a person insures his property, then they can make a claim if the property is damaged or destroyed as a result of an accident or damage from water or fire. The insurer (usually the insurance company) will provide the security and pay a premium according to terms and conditions.

What are the insurance documents?

Insurance document translation

An insurance document is a legal agreement between two parties, the insurer and the insured. This document provides evidence of the contract between the two parties and can also give rights to the insurer against insurance protection.

There are a range of types of insurance documents that are used for different kinds of insurance. Every type of insurance document is important for all insurance businesses.

Understanding the major types of insurance documents

There are mainly three types of insurance documents – Certificate of Insurance, Insurance Policy, and Insurance Broker’s Note. Let’s discuss each type in detail.

  • Insurance Policy

An Insurance Policy is a type of insurance document or insurance contract that is issued by an insurance company to a policyholder. It is a legally binding written document that includes all the terms and conditions of the contract on which the insured can claim compensation from the insurer. In short, an insurance policy acts as legal evidence of the insurance document.

  • Certificate of Insurance

The Certificate of Insurance, also known as Cover Note, provides important evidence of insurance although unlike the Insurance Policy, it does not set out the necessary terms and conditions of insurance. It acts as actual proof that the goods have been covered under a master policy.

  • Insurance Broker’s Note

This type of insurance document does not act as evidence of the insurance contract as it indicates the pending issuance of the insurance policy.
