Request a Statement of Self Retention

The general policy of the State of New York is self-assumption of risk where no insurance is ordinarily obtained to protect state-owned property or for third-party claims arising from injuries to the public at state-owned facilities, sometimes known as “Self Insurance” or “Self Retention.” You may request a Statement of Self Retention by emailing [email protected].

Request a Certificate of Insurance for General Liability

Request coverage for an event such as the use of space for a meeting or training, display booths, classroom use, etc. The limit of liability is $1,000,000/$2,000,000 aggregate. If you are requesting coverage for an event that does not fall within the policy’s current schedule of coverage, you may be charged a premium to add the requested coverage. Any certificates that result in additional premium will be forwarded to the requesting agency for approval prior to being issued.

To request, download and fill out the Certificate of Insurance for General Liability form below and email it to [email protected].
