New Evidence of Property Insurance Form and 2021 Application Changes
January 05, 2021
Citizens has implemented the following changes for Personal Lines policies effective February 1, 2021, or later.
Evidence of Property Insurance
Citizens has a new form called Evidence of Property Insurance (CIT EOI 02 21) for individuals who need proof of insurance at a real estate closing when coverage has been bound by the agent but has not yet been issued. The form clarifies that Citizens will provide insurance in return for the premium and compliance with all applicable provisions of the policy.
This form is only available in PolicyCenter® after a new-business policy has been bound. Select Print Options > Evidence of Property Insurance from the Premium Estimate screen.
