Businesses need insurance to protect them against liabilities or risks that arise in the course of doing business. For example, when a company needs to hire a contractor to build something, it's important to make certain the contractor has insurance in the event something he or one of his employees does cause a costly accident. Like the insurance card you keep in your car to show your proof of insurance to a law enforcement officer when you're pulled over, a certificate of insurance tells a hiring company that the vendor or contractor has insurance. A certificate of insurance is nothing more than proof of insurance coverage.

While it sounds officious, a certificate holder is only the entity to whom the certificate of insurance was issued upon request. Certificate of insurance forms has a special place on them to add the name and address of the certificate holder. When you work in a company that hires outside businesses to provide services, which could include janitorial or landscaping services, for example, your company will need these businesses to provide proof they have insurance. Unless the vendor can give the hiring company the certificate of insurance listing it as the certificate holder, it's highly unlikely the vendor will get the contracting work.

One place where you might come across the need for a certificate of insurance in your personal life is when you rent an apartment. Some landlords require that you carry renter's insurance -- especially if you have a dog -- and provide them with proof of insurance. Your insurance carrier -- at your request -- would list them as a certificate holder on your policy unless the landlord requires that he be additionally insured to protect his interests. Some insurance companies will raise your insurance premium when you add an additional insured to your policy.
