Protection for Every Budget
and Every Stage of Life

For more than 40 years, the Trust for Insuring Educators (TIE) has been helping teachers, administrators and support staff at all levels, from preschool to post-graduate, get the insurance protection their families need.

We offer discounts and member-only rates on insurance plans from leading companies such as New York Life Insurance Company, GEICO, and MetLife, to name a few. Many policies are specially designed to meet the needs of educators.

These insurance plans are available exclusively to the members and staff of more than 60 professional associations that participate in the Trust for Insuring Educators, the second-largest consortium of educators in the U.S.
