Q: Does each insured receive their own policy?
A: Yes, each individual receives a copy of the group policy, with their corresponding certificate. The Certificate, which looks like a declaration page, will display the name insured, address, policy period, limit of liability and a schedule of covered locations. Each Certificate holder has their own limits which are not impaired by claims presented by other certificate holders.

A: Coverage is afforded for both unknown and scheduled tanks. There is coverage for "phantom" tanks which are unknown to the Certificate Holder.

A: Only tanks 20 years old and newer can be scheduled. However if the pollution is caused by an unknown tank, the policy will provide coverage, regardless of age. Age limitation is for KNOWN tanks only.
