What does Additional insured mean with regard to general liability?

You are the insured. Your landlord or partner or banker may be the additional insured. They have a financial interest in or liability at stake with whatever it is you are insuring. It does not cost you more to name an additional insured. Why didn't you aks your agent this question? Can the person I was working for withold money owed to me because I did not put him under additionaly insured? Not legally unless it was contractually noted. If you did not have a loss you can just add the additional insured now. In a contractor/subcontractor relationship the contractor may request the subcontractor to name him "additional insured". In the event that a liability issue arises and is caused by the work of the subcontracor, the subcontractor's insurance will not only cover any claims made against the sub, but will also provide claims made against the contractor in regards to the sub's negligence. Many insurance companies DO charge a flat fee or a percentage based fee to name an additional insured.

There is no legal requirement for a contractor to be insured as of yet. However, It would likely be very difficult to get any work or contracts if your not insured. Although the state does not require you be insured, your customers most likely will require it.

You show up with a bid and no insurance, they might consider that you are not a serious contractor and you're wasting their time.
