In this era of continued belt-tightening in education, this may serve as a small beam of hope during a stressful time.
San Mateo, California (PRWEB) November 28, 2012
As education budgets continue to be slashed, more and more teachers and other education professionals are seeing their jobs disappear. Losing a job is tough and finding another even tougher. Bills still have to be paid, and families fed and clothed. To help ease burdens faced by suddenly unemployed educators and education workers, California Casualty is offering potential relief while they are laid off.
Layoff S.O.S. – “Premium Relief” is being piloted by the company in four states: Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Premium Relief provides reduction in premium up to $1,000 or half of the insured’s annual premium.
Layoff S.O.S. – “Deductible Relief” – is being offered by the company in seven states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Maryland, Oregon, Texas and Virginia. The program provides reimbursement of the insured’s policy deductible, up to $1,000.
Both offers are available to California Casualty policyholders in the education field, in the identified states, who have been insured with the company at least a year and who have through no fault of their own lost a regular full-time job.

“In this era of continued belt-tightening in education, this may serve as a small beam of hope during a stressful time,” said Doug Goldberg, Senior Vice President at California Casualty.
