Safeguard Your Summer Vacay!
Have you checked everything off your vacation list? Sunscreen, bug spray, swimsuits…what about Travel Assistance?
Preparing for possible twists and turns is important when planning a great vacation!
The Standard Insurance Company has done just that for our members with their Travel Assistance program. The Travel Assistance program is available to members who have basic life insurance through MOSERS.
If you are a MOSERS retiree and you retained basic life insurance in retirement, you and your spouse are covered with Travel Assistance. Travel Assistance is available when you travel more than 100 miles from home or internationally for up to 180 days.
WHAT IT IS:
Travel Assistance is available through group insurance products provided by Standard Insurance Company (The Standard). The service is provided by Assist America, Inc.
Travel Assistance can help MOSERS members and their families prepare for trips and during critical situations while away from home. The program can assist participants with finding qualified medical providers, legal services or with the replacement of lost credit cards and passports.
WHAT IT IS NOT:
Travel Assistance is not travel insurance. Travel Assistance provides specific support services while traveling. Travel insurance provides monetary compensation for losses that occur while traveling.
