What does Risk Schedule mean in AL3 files, and what is included in a Risk Schedule?

| By Charu Garg

A “Risk Schedule” in the context of AL3 files typically refers to a section or segment of the file that contains information related to risks associated with an insurance policy. The specific details included in a Risk Schedule may vary depending on the type of insurance and the requirements of the organization using the AL3 standard. Generally, a Risk Schedule may include information such as:

Policy Information:

  • Policy Number: An insurance policy’s policy number serves as distinctive identification.
  • Policy Type: The type of insurance policy (e.g., property, casualty, life).
  • Effective and Expiration Dates: The dates when the coverage starts and ends.

Risk Identification:

  • Insured’s Name and Address: Information about the entity or individual being insured.
  • Risk Location: For property insurance, details about the location of the insured property.

Coverage Details:

  • Coverage Type: The specific type of coverage provided (e.g., liability, property, life).
  • Coverage Limits: The maximum amount the insurer will pay for covered losses.
  • Deductibles: The amount that the insured must pay out of pocket before the insurance coverage takes effect.

Premium Information:

  • Premium Amount: the price of insurance protection.
  • Payment Schedule: Details about how and when premium payments are to be made.

Underwriting Information:

  • Underwriting Factors: Information used to assess risk and determine premium rates.
  • Risk Assessments: Details about the evaluation of the risk being insured.

Endorsements and Amendments:

  • Endorsement Details: Any changes or additions to the policy made after its inception.

Loss History:

  • Claims Information: Details about previous claims or losses associated with the insured risk.

Additional Information:

  • Policyholder Information: Details about the entity or individual holding the insurance policy.
  • Agent Information: Information about the insurance agent or broker involved.

It’s important to note that the specific elements and structure of AL3 files can be quite detailed and can vary depending on the insurance company and the type of policy. The ACORD standards are designed to provide a common framework for exchanging information, but the exact implementation details may differ between organizations.

For the most accurate and up-to-date information, especially if there have been changes or updates to the ACORD standards since my last update in September 2021, I recommend consulting the latest ACORD documentation or contacting ACORD directly for specific details regarding AL3 files and the contents of a Risk Schedule.
