The University of Iowa is often asked for proof of insurance coverage(s). A certificate of insurance verifies to another party that insurance coverage exists. Certificates of insurance may be needed for agreements or contracts, activities or events, use of another’s facilities or equipment, vehicle rentals, and so forth. The documents/links below provide information that should fulfill most requirements for verification of insurances. If these do not meet the needs of the other party, or if proof of insurance for a different or specific type of insurance is needed, please contact the Department of Risk Management, Insurance and Loss Prevention: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certificates of Self-Insurance
The University permits, but does not require, travel on aircraft that is personally/privately owned by a University traveler or employee. Both pilots and passengers are solely responsible for their decision to use a personally owned or privately leased/rented aircraft to travel.
Any person authorized to travel at University expense and who intends to use/pilot a personally owned or privately leased aircraft while on approved University business must follow the guidelines as stated in the University's Policies and Procedure Manual, SectionV-22.1(4).
The University is not responsible for personal injury or damage for individuals who choose to travel in a privately owned or leased aircraft. In the event of an accident injury, or damage, travelers must look to the responsible party, the pilot or owner of the aircraft or their insurance, for recourse.
The following forms must be filed with the Department of Risk Management, Insurance and Loss Prevention before travel:
