Meemic Insurance Services Now Available to Illinois Educators
WARRENVILLE, Ill., Oct. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Meemic Insurance Company, a Michigan-based insurance provider offering personal auto, homeowners, and umbrella coverages tailored exclusively to teachers and other educational employees, announced today that the company will immediately begin offering insurance services to educational employees in Illinois.
Meemic Insurance Company has been offering the Michigan educational community protection, products and services at preferred rates for more than 64 years. During that time the company has earned a reputation of excellence and distinction. In 2012, Meemic expanded its reach by introducing its exceptional services to the Wisconsin community as well. The addition of Illinois to the Company's service area means new options and opportunities for educators in the state.
Founded by seven teachers as an insurance company to serve fellow educators, Meemic strives to partner with members of the educational community including public, charter and parochial K-12 school systems as well as higher education institutions to provide products, programs and assistance to recognize and foster educational excellence.
"For more than six decades Meemic Insurance has been offering educators superior insurance coverage and service to effectively protect the well-being, property and possessions of those who work in Michigan and Wisconsin's educational community," said Pamela Harlin, spokesperson for Meemic Insurance Company. "We are eager to offer Illinois educators those same protections, along with the peace of mind that comes from working with an insurance company that understands and specializes in serving educators - exclusively."
Many of our agents are from the educational community themselves, and they understand educators' unique needs. Meemic offers exclusive benefits specifically for educational staff, like a low $25 deductible for covered Comprehensive losses to a vehicle on school property, and a special liability coverage for transporting students to and from school events – and more.
The company is rooted in education and is focused on a specific community where educator referrals are common and providing a superior customer experience is a primary focus. In recent surveys, the company earned a 97% customer satisfaction rating for its claims service. As a result of service differentiation and excellence, last year over 69% of new members were referred to Meemic by other satisfied educators.
"Meemic Insurance Company is dedicated to exceeding the expectations of its members and delivering superior value at every opportunity," said Ms. Harlin. "We look at the bigger picture and care for more than just your business. We acknowledge and appreciate your calling as an educator. This mentality is noticeable in the way our agents interact with members, who are treated as colleagues, friends and part of the Meemic family." Brand New FIA! Learn more.
Despite their exclusive focus on the education community, Meemic does not charge membership fees or dues. If you're an educator or on the staff at a public, charter, private or parochial school, or at a college or university, you can qualify for the exclusive savings offered by Meemic.

In addition to offering insurance services, Meemic also supports the educational community through The Meemic Foundation. The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education, a non-profit organization created in 1992 by Meemic Insurance Company, offers financial assistance to schools and educators in the form of grants. As resources for education continue to dwindle, The Meemic Foundation offers the educational community an additional opportunity to receive financial support for outstanding enrichment programs that help advance the future of education. More than $1,000,000 has been provided to members of the educational community to support innovative programs, events and projects that have significantly impacted the classroom experience for more than 1.5 million students. Currently, the Foundation is accepting grant applications. Illinois educational community members interested in grant opportunities can visit www.MeemicFoundation.com
