“When [UNFCU] looked to identify a company who could deliver a critical product to a distinctive niche for the first time, we found leadership, expertise and more in Clements.”
Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
UNFCU Financial Advisors, a United Nations Federal Credit Union-owned company, has partnered with Clements International to offer the first International Term Life and Personal Accident Insurance program to meet the needs of its members in the field, many of whom work and live in humanitarian crisis and war-torn regions. These insurance policies provide competitively-priced, worldwide protection for UNFCU members in high-risk countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Designed with the expatriate and local national in mind, this exclusive program covers natural or accidental death, and coverage for loss due to terrorism. Term Life Insurance may be purchased alone or in conjunction with Personal Accident Insurance to protect the financial stability of the policyholder’s survivors. Discounted rates are available for UNFCU members with coverage limits of up to 1 million USD.
“Our goal was to find an insurance solution and fill a void for our members, who are right there on the front lines on humanitarian missions,” said Stephen Ryerson, president of UNFCU Financial Advisors, who added that the institution is already seeing strong interest in the product at other United Nations hubs, such as Kenya. “When we looked to identify a company who could deliver a critical product to a distinctive niche for the first time, we found leadership, expertise and more in Clements.”
According to the Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AARO), an estimated 5.25 million Americans are currently living abroad. At least a portion of this group, plus the larger, international expatriate population are seeking reliable providers to help meet their insurance needs.
“We have international experience, access to a broad range of markets, and the flexibility to create new, specialty products,” said Dan Tuman, vice president of insurance sales for Clements International. “We are especially pleased to offer a unique program to UNFCU to help fulfill their mission of ‘serving the people who serve the world.’”
