California Casualty - Our Partners Supporting Public Education



Since 2000, California Casualty has proudly supported NEA members and their families by providing auto and home insurance coverage through the NEA Auto & Home Insurance Program. In business for more than 100 years, California Casualty has demonstrated a strong commitment to educators and public education by providing NEA members with special benefits and rates not available to the general public as well as awarding hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to educators and schools through the following initiatives:

  • $2,500 Academic Awards to help educators purchase supplies for their classrooms
  • $200 Help Your Classroom awards (8 awarded each month)
  • Thomas R. Brown Athletic Grants to middle-school and high-school athletic programs (a total of $83,000 awarded so far in 2017)
  • Founding sponsor of the Impact Teen Drivers program, which partners with educators, as well as police officers and firefighters, to help save the lives of young drivers by teaching them about the dangers of distracted driving
  • and the 2017 Pledge to Drive Focused Campaign, through which one lucky educator will win a new car for taking the pledge to avoid distracted driving

In addition, California Casualty is a major sponsor of The NEA Foundation with “The California Casualty Award for Teaching Excellence” and a sponsor of the California Teachers of the Year and Gold Ribbon Schools Program.

“As an ESP, finances are always an issue. California Casualty saves me my entire year’s dues just by using their car and renter’s insurance.”
NEA member, Illinois

“After my son graduated from college and got a job, I told him his car insurance premiums were now his responsibility. He asked whom to contact, and I said, ‘There’s a company called California Casualty that you would qualify for since I belong to NEA.’ He called around and found they had the best rates. That was in 2007, and he’s still with the company and happy with their service.”

“The car insurance provided by California Casualty comes with identity theft protection. Well, guess what? My purse was stolen, and California Casualty helped me with credit checks and filling out affidavits--and now my credit report is back on track!”

“When I had a wreck back in 2012, with only one phone call, California Casualty took care of everything, sending a tow truck and getting me a rental car. While I was recovering, they called to check on me and keep me informed of the processing of my claim. It couldn’t have been easier!”
