When members enter into written contracts or agreements there is often a requirement for them to provide proof that they have insurance or other coverage to protect both themselves and the other party to the contract. The Authority provides members with this proof through Evidence of Coverage letters (EOCs). Evidence of Coverage, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Insurance, provides documentation of liability and/or workers’ compensation coverage and is commonly issued to third parties, such as individuals, vendors, companies, schools and/or other agencies.
When the written contract or agreement extends beyond the end of the coverage period on June 30 every year, the member needs to input the request as a “recurring” EOC so that it can be reissued annually. The new EOC can be obtained easily through the Authority’s website.
The 2020-21 recurring Evidence of Coverage webpage is live and ready for members to access EOCs for coverage through June 30, 2021. Members can reissue EOCs for the 2018-19, 2019-20, and 2020-21 coverage years. Members only need to mark the “No Changes” or “Revise” box, make any necessary changes, click “Submit Updates”, and the updated EOC will be emailed to the member immediately for distribution to the party who requires it in the written contract or agreement.
The Authority is encouraging members to review all current EOCs and delete any that are no longer needed.
