School insurance: which to choose?


At the beginning of the school year, you have to settle the school insurance file! A real Chinese puzzle! Not always easy to make your choice. Here are some ways to help you decide!

School insurance, what for?

    • To protect the damage your child could cause to a third party and also those he might suffer.
    • Mandatory or not? Your child must be insured as part of school activities such as outings and school trips. Insurance may also be required for extracurricular activities.
    • But before you commit, ask your insurer to find out if your multi-risk insurance housing includes both civil liability (for damage caused by your child to others: if it breaks the glasses of a friend, for example) AND personal injury accident insurance (for damages suffered by your child and for which there is no responsible).
    • If this is not the case, it is advisable to contract a school insurance. You can check with the principal, parent associations, and the Insurance Information and Documentation Center (CDIA) in your area.
    • You can also get closer to insurance companies that will offer you different formulas adapted to your needs.

Think about it!

• Your "multi-risk home insurance" insurance covers the civil liability of all members of your family. Some also include an "individual accident" guarantee. The scope of this guarantee is often more limited than that of school insurance. Check the refund rates.

• Your contract "accident guarantee of life" assures your family against bodily injury, including death and permanent disability. These allowances can be combined with those of the school insurance.
