You insure your car, home, and possessions against loss. Can you afford NOT to insure yourself in your professional practice? Many believe that the Acts and Omission Insurance carried by the school board is adequate to protect them - WRONG! We often discover too late that the insurance and legal counsel is not concerned about district employees. You may find that without MPE, you are all alone with significant exposure for your actions as an educator. Your MPE insurance provides up to $2,000,000 in damages and provides for legal expenses in addition.
Your MPE liability provides legal assistance related to employment or professional matters (click here for detailed information). You are also provided with $10,000 Accidental Death & Dismemberment, in the event of such a tragedy, as well as $2,500 Assault-related property damage.
Long Term Care Coverage
MPE has also now endorsed optional Long Term Care Insurance for our members. Coverage is designed to preserve financial independence and avoid relying on family and friends to protect savings and investments, to maintain freedom of choice on determining how and where care is received. As an MPE member you will receive premium advantages, simplified qualification, individual selection of benefits and extended family eligibility. More information on Long Term Care.
