Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between “Named Insured”, “First Named Insured” and “Additional Insured”?

Named insureds are those listed by name in the relevant block of the policy’s declaration page. Although the named insured is commonly one person, partnership, corporation or other entity with insurable interests, multiple names insured may be included.

First Named Insured is the first name listed on the policy declarations (front page of the policy). This insured acts as the legal agent for all named insureds in initiating cancellation, requesting policy changes or accepting any return premiums. The first named insured may also be responsible for payment of the premiums.

Additional insured is an entity to which a policy’s coverage is extended. An additional insured must be added to the policy prior to a claim being paid. There must be a relationship between the additional insured and the named insured. Being an additional insured on another’s policy does not eliminate the need for someone to have his/her own Commercial Liability policy.
