ACORD 63 – Fraud (Some states require a state specific form)
The ACORD 63 is the General Fraud Statement. You should have each insured sign this as a matter of course.
Many states have their own state specific Fraud form. If the state the insured exposure is in has a specific state exception form, you should use that state’s exception form.
