Auto, Home, and Pet Insurance

Auto and Home Insurance

You may purchase group auto, home, and personal property liability insurance through Mercer Voluntary Benefits. You have the option of receiving a free quote from MetLife Auto & Home or Travelers Insurance. Your payments will be spread over the policy term and will be automatically deducted from your paycheck.

Should you leave the employment of the university, you may continue this coverage through direct billing from Marsh U.S. Consumer.


Pet Insurance

Mercer Voluntary Benefits also offers pet insurance through Nationwide.

This insurance covers dogs, cats, birds and exotic pets and works through the reimbursement of expenses. There is no network and you can take your pet to the veterinarian of your choice. You pay your vet's bill in full and have your vet provide you with a diagnosis, treatment date(s) and itemized invoice(s) for processing. You send these to Nationwide insurance for your reimbursement.
