    A binder is a one page summary showing the policy is issued or now in force. We use the term the policy is bound and this is where binder comes from. In most cases when a new policy is issued an agent can issue a binder to the insured or lender showing proof of coverage since the actual policy deceleration pages will not be available for several days.
