An insurance policy needs to be altered over time and confirmed by clients, regulation agencies, and other entities. In a perfect world, it would just be trusted that an insurance company will apply the right changes, and the clients have the right coverage. But, everything is backed by clear paperwork and documentation as detailed below.
An endorsement is additional documentation added to a main policy. It helps iron out and explain further necessary details that were not outlined in the original policy. It is useful for niche industries that have a special type of service. Generally, insurance companies will use one of a variety of pre-formatted main policies based on category (business, liability, personal, etc.). The endorsement is attached to this main policy. It helps keep the core policy intact while also adding additional terms specific to the policyholder.
Endorsements are also used if the policy changes for any particular reason. The updates of the policy are added to an endorsement page to avoid having to edit and unnecessarily change the core policy.
The certificates are issued to help explain and define the pertinent details of the policy. New certificates are sometimes added if an endorsement is added to a policy. Most of the time they are not added, and they will stand until the policy is renewed. There are two main types of certificates. The first is the certificate of insurance. In short, this essentially proves that a client has the coverage they are touting. It shows the Insurance Service in Minot ND, the limit, the issuer, and the date it runs effectively.
The second type of certificate is an ACORD certificate. It is used in the Cooperative Operations Research and Development. It is almost identical to a traditional proof certificate of insurance. The main difference is that it is received and affirmed by ACORD, which is an organization involved in maintaining local business and regulations. They may require a specific ACORD certificate that says to others that they are within regulations.
