“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!”
