Requesting Certificates of Insurance

To obtain Property, Auto Liability and General Liability Certificates, please contact Brenda Humberston, director of workers' compensation and risk specialist, at the Main Campus Risk Management Office at 419.530.3655 or email to brenda.humberston@utoledo.edu.

A Certificate of Insurance ("Certificate" or "COI") can generally be obtained from the insurance company within 24 hours.  When requesting a Certificate you are required to provide the following information:

  • Name and address of the Certificate Holder: This is the person or company requesting the Certificate.  A Certificate cannot be completed without this information.
  • Type of insurance: Is the Certificate Holder requesting proof of property, auto liability, general liability or professional liability coverage?  Let us know so the appropriate Certificates are obtained.
  • Reason for the Certificate: It is important to have some identifying information in the Certificate's description that indicates the purpose of the Certificate.  If you are renting facilities for a University function, indicate where and when.  If you are renting or leasing equipment, indicate what is being rented/leased, duration of rental/lease and value of the rented/leased equipment. If you are going to a clinical facility and need proof of professional liability insurance, indicate the site, location, time period and profession.  If the request is for a specific student, provide the student's name.  Any available details are useful in preparing a Certificate that will be acceptable to both UT and the Certificate Holder
