Additional Information

Often those asking to be named as loss payees have leased some type of equipment to the insured—a photocopy machine, for example. Several different loss payee clauses address different insurable interest situations. A loss payee is also common in a personal auto policy (PAP) in which the automobile is financed. The lending institution would be listed as the loss payee on the declarations page.
