Early reporting and active involvement by the institution and UE aressential for successful claims resolution. An institution that fails to meet the reporting responsibilities outlined in its insurance policy risks denial of coverage or loss of full benefits. Reporting considerations vary with the type of policy.
The Subscribers’ Advisory Board of United Educators Insurance (UE), a reciprocal risk retention group celebrating 30 years of service to education, today declared a dividend distribution payable to all renewing policyholders, subject to approval by the state of Vermont. The dividend will be paid 45 days following renewals occurring between May 1, 2017, and April 30, 2018. Dividend amounts will be based on the balance in the member’s Subscriber Savings Accounts (SSA); owners will receive 2% of their SSA account balance.
This marks the seventh consecutive year of dividend distributions to UE members and represents the Board’s continuing confidence in the company’s strong capital position, conservative investment portfolio, and stable profit levels. Since the Board first declared a dividend in 2011, more than $35 million has been returned to UE's members in the form of dividend distributions and the dividend payments in the upcoming renewal cycle are expected to exceed $5 million.
“Our members appreciate that through a UE insurance purchase, they are not only protected for losses, they are building an ownership share in education’s own insurance company,” said Janice M. Abraham, President and CEO of UE. “And, as they continue to take meaningful steps prevent claims, we are able to continue our track record of financial stability and a commitment to covering the exposures most important to education.”
More than 1,300 schools, colleges, and universities rely on UE for liability insurance coverage. In addition to addressing the unique risks posed by education—concussion, sexual assault and molestation, and tenure issues—UE expanded coverage this year related to use of drones and actions of police professionals on campus.
