Why use SCSC’s partner, NIS, instead of purchasing this product on your own?

  • Cooperation Pays: Cost of insurance rises as risk increases. Large groups have a lower price because risk is spread over more people. As a member of SCSC, you are a part of a larger group and can take advantage of rates that have been specially negotiated for SCSC members.
  • Policies Customized to Meet Your Specific Needs: Did you know that public sector insurance policies have little in common with the way commercial policies are written? What looks like a policy match may be a crisis waiting to happen. Since 1969, NIS's exclusive focus has been public sector business. NIS knows how to customize a solution, prevent claim issues and respond to your needs while respecting your budget.
  • World-Class Support: Your needs are met by the NIS service team which includes a sales representative, service representative and/or account representative and billing representative. Annual measurement of NIS' written customer standards show an average customer retention rate of 96%, placing NIS into a world-class category as compared with the industry benchmark of 84%.
