Traveler’s Insurance

Optional insurance benefits are not typically associated with an organization’s primary benefit package and are, as the name suggests, optional. These benefits provide faculty and staff with group discounts on purchases or services in the following insurance products: auto, home, renters, identity theft, condo, personal umbrella (must have auto or homeowner’s insurance with Travelers to qualify), flood, boat and yacht, dwelling fire, motor home, rental and seasonal property, and valuable articles.

By clicking on the link below, employees can gain access to information about the products listed above. If you decide to choose a benefit through Travelers, transactions are between you and the service provider.

Offering this voluntary benefits program supports our philosophy of providing our employees with quality products through reputable insurance companies like Travelers.
