Are you and your family prepared for the unexpected? College students may face increased risks to accidents, illness, identity theft exposure, and social media concerns. Help protect yourself and your student with the Student Protection PlanTM – the bundle of benefits designed to provide greater security while your student is away at school.

The Student Protection Plan1 includes:

Family Emergency Travel Services2

Homesickness isn’t the only challenge of studying away from home. What if there is an emergency? With Family Emergency Travel Services from Kindred Travel, receive coverage for: travel assistance; emergency economy transportation; out-of-pocket expenses relating to meals and accommodations for a roundtrip to travel to the family member and repatriation if you or your parent is hospitalized due to a serious injury or illness and/or dies.2

Family Emergency Travel Services helps your family reunite, from booking and coordinating an itinerary, to up to $25,000 in coverage for your trip.

Emergency Medical Evacuation3

Travel is a part of college life, whether it’s the trip to campus, spring break or study abroad. Will you have access to adequate medical care? If you incur a sickness, injury or suffer a loss of life while traveling at least 150 miles from home, Emergency Medical Evacuation from Kindred Travel will transport you to the nearest medical facility.

Identity Theft Protection & Resolution Services4

If you’re studying for finals or traveling abroad, how long would it take you to notice your identity has been stolen? Identity Theft and Resolution Services helps you protect yourself by monitoring your information and helping you reclaim and resolve your identity in the case of theft. You can register your personal information, including debit and credit cards, so you’ll be alerted if this information is being sold or traded by thieves on the web.

Online Reputation Management Services

Many college students are on social media, but do you know if your information is available to more than just your friends? Services helps you monitor and control your personal information on the Internet by identifying your personal information on people-search sites, blocking marketing companies from tracking your web browsing, and more.

Roadside Assistance5

Whether you have a car on campus, or grab rides from your friends – what would you do if the car you were in broke down? With Roadside Assistance from Quest Towing Services, you’ll have access to 24/7 assistance, including fuel/fluid delivery, dispatch emergency road service, dispatch tire service, dispatch lock out service, emergency battery service, emergency towing service and more.

The Student Protection Plan offers added security at an affordable cost. Receive all of these benefits for as low as $179/year.
