ISM + John Burroughs School

The Situation: A Trusted Insurance Partner

In 2015, John Burroughs School faced what every school community fears—a beloved employee passed away. As both the school and the immediate family began the process of healing, the task of sorting and filing documentation also began.

The family contacted the school’s Business Manager, Laura Placio, for assistance in filing a Life Insurance claim, who in turn contacted ISM for assistance with the process. As a client of more than 25 years for Group Life/Accidental Death & Dismemberment insurance, Group Long Term Disability (LTD) insurance, and Voluntary Life insurance through the ISM Trust, Burroughs had no hesitation in reaching out to ISM for assistance on the requested forms.

The Solution: Support in Times of Need

During the conversation, based on the specifics of the situation, ISM suggested that the family of the deceased also file posthumously for LTD benefits, which included a six-month Survivor Benefit. The family chose to move forward with filing the posthumous LTD claim in addition to the Life Insurance claim. All claims were approved and the policy paid the benefits out to the employee’s family.

The Benefit: An Additional $34,000

ISM’s situational analysis and partnership with John Burroughs School helped the family collect an additional $34,000 in benefits, which they may have not otherwise received. “ISM has been a trusted partner of John Burroughs School for over 25 years, and this is just one example of a time when we were able to work together to achieve the best outcomes for our employees and their families” said Laura. “ISM’s support helps us meet our mission, and we look forward to working together for many years to come.”
