A Certificate of Insurance (also known as a COI) is a document from an insurance agent/broker that serves as evidence of insurance coverage; it outlines the type of insurance, the limits of liability and the effective and expiration dates of coverage. It is important to note that a certificate of insurance is only evidence of coverage in effect at the time of issuance of the certificate; it is not an insurance policy nor does it convey any rights to the certificate holder.
