An insurance surcharge assessment is a document which is presented to a client or an individual after the insurance surcharge amount for a period of time has been calculated. It is the additional amount added to the insurance premium paid by an individual or estate and is calculated by determining the degree of risk associated with the client. The document is a crucial one and must be factually correct.
There should be no errors of calculation and transparency and clarity must be maintained in the insurance surcharge assessment. Care should be taken to get it compiled in an easy and lucid fashion so that the client can understand the reasons for the additional amount being added. The terms and conditions of the insurance company with regards to insurance surcharge assessment must also be mentioned.
