Rights and Responsibilities of the Insured
The purpose of this course is to better equip you in your professional activities as an Insurance Agent or Insurance Adjuster.
All insurance policies impose certain duties on the insured. This course brief identifies and addresses the range of issues concerning the insured's duties, including their source, how to comply with them, when compliance with certain duties may be excused, and the consequences of an unexcused breach. In this course you will review the insured’s duty to notify the insurer of a loss or claim; the duty to cooperate with the insurer; duties in the event of a loss; and the requirement for a Sworn Proof of Loss.
