Attention: Parents or Guardians
The Niagara Catholic District School Board does not provide accident insurance coverage for student injuries that occur on school premises or during school activities. Accidents can and do happen. Some injuries incur medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans. As a parent or guardian, you become responsible for these expenses.
The Board is empowered to make available an Accident and Life Insurance Programme for students. Participation in such a programme is voluntary and the costs are to be paid by the parent or guardian.
For your convenience, Niagara Catholic has arranged a Student Accident Insurance Policy exclusively through Old Reliable Life Insurance Company. This programme offers a variety of plans and benefits at affordable prices. Benefits included are:
- dental expenses (resulting from an accident)
- total and permanent disability
- paralysis/loss of use
- special disability benefits
- death benefits.
If your child participates in co-curricular activities or activities outside the school day, there is a plan tailored to your needs. All rates are one-time annual premiums. Family rates for 3 or more children are also offered.
The insurance agreement is between you and Old Reliable Life Insurance Company. If you wish to subscribe you may apply directly at: www.insuremykids.com.
Any questions should be directed to Old Reliable Life Insurance Company toll free at: 1-800-463-K1D5 (5437).
Student Accident Insurance is especially valuable for today’s active children.
