Now Accepting Partial Term Memberships
The School Pool for Excess Liability Limits Joint Insurance Fund (SPELL JIF) is pleased to announce that they are now accepting partial term memberships in the school joint insurance fund.
In the past, districts could only apply for membership if all lines of coverage (Workers’ Compensation, Property, Auto & General Liability, Educators/School Board Legal Liability) were up for renewal.
By accepting partial term memberships, districts interested in exploring membership are permitted to apply for partial term membership as applicable lines of coverage come up for renewal until an all lines membership is achieved.
A SPELL JIF Board of Trustees Delegate, Mr. Richard Kaz, Jr., School Business Administrator from Northern Burlington County Regional School District, explained that “districts have been able to save thousands of dollars by participating in the fund. School districts save in two ways when they and their joint insurance funds do not have losses. No, or fewer, losses generate return funds to the district and drives down future costs. ”
Any district interested in joining the fund can contact the Executive Director’s Office at 856-446-9128 and speak with Craig Wilkie or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
