Murder Provision Added To Teachers' Life Insurance Policies

By Rstaib Posted : 08/01/2006

The current condition and safety of teachers at our schools is deteriorating at a rapid pace. Who would have thought that being a teacher could carry so many threats and be such a high-risk job? Well in this day and age, it is more than anyone would have thought it to be. After a high-profile school violence case in Florida ended in a teacher being shot, the National Education Association (NEA) added a provision to its life insurance policy to protect its members. A murder provision plan was added to the list of benefits, which covers the NEA member if they are killed in the classroom, on a school-sanctioned trip, at a sporting event, field trip or during a school related activity. The current "on the job," accidental death benefit is $50,000, that benefit has tripled with the addition of the new murder insurance plan to the current life insurance policy offered to teachers.
