Trick? Or Treat?

October is a month filled with tricks and treats.  While I love the treats, it helps to be prepared for the unexpected ‘tricks’.  Have you considered applying for the ABE-Sponsored Hospital Money Program (HMP) for extra protection against an unexpected hospitalization?  ABA members are eligible to apply for HMP on a guaranteed acceptance basis.  With our HMP, you can get up to $500 per day for each covered hospitalization for up to 365 days.  Ask me (PIR) for more information about how HMP can help protect you.

These are group insurance plans, meaning coverage is issued to an ABA member under a certificate of insurance; it is not provided under an individual policy, nor is it employer/employee insurance.

Have We Told You Lately that We Thank You?

We are pleased to announce that approximately 85% of ABE-sponsored member insureds donated their 2009 dividends! These donations help fund more than 200 law-related public service, educational, and research projects through grants to the American Bar Foundation (ABF) and the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE). As a way to thank each and every donor, we want to acknowledge these generous gifts. Visit our online donor list to find your name and other fellow donors.

When You Need More Insurance Options Exclusively for ABA Members –

American Bar Insurance Plans Consultants, Inc. was established in 1989 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American Bar Endowment. ABI was created to generate an additional source of revenue to support the Endowment's charitable goals.  ABI sponsors insurance programs for ABA members that the Endowment is unable to offer, due to its dividend contribution structure.  ABI is paid compensation by the underwriters of the programs it sponsors, and pays dividends out of its net profits to the Endowment.  The Endowment uses the dividends it receives from its subsidiary for its charitable work.
