Additional Insured or Additional Interest

Additional Insured or Additional Interest is a person or entity (such as a leasing company), other than the named insured, who is protected under the auto policy. If an auto is leased, the leasing company may want to be listed as an Additional Insured as well as a lien holder or loss payee. This protects the leasing company if it's named in a lawsuit for an accident caused by a policyholder.
