RED BANK, N.J., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Teachers' Insurance Plan of NJ and the New Jersey State Parent Teacher Association (NJPTA) announced a new partnership which opens Teachers' Insurance's low rates and special services to NJPTA members. In addition to this new savings opportunity for hundreds of thousands of New Jerseyans, the partnership will generate much needed funding for local PTA chapters across the state.

"It is a pleasure to be associated with an organization that shares a commitment to education and has a tremendous track record of making a difference in the lives of New Jersey students throughout the state," stated Marc V. Buro, President of Teachers Auto Insurance Company of New Jersey.

Historically, Teachers' Insurance was only available to employees of educational institutions in New Jersey. After talking to teachers throughout New Jersey, the company began to better appreciate the beneficial partnership employees in education have developed with members of their local PTAs. "Teachers' Insurance recognizes the commitment that New Jersey educators make to their communities and to their craft. We believe that educators – both in and out of the classroom – should be served by an auto insurance company that only focuses on them and their unique needs," said Buro.

Parents who are active members of the New Jersey State PTA are eligible for special auto insurance coverages at lower rates than those offered by companies who insure everyone. Members of NJPTA just need to provide a copy of their membership card to qualify.

"The partnership with Teachers' Insurance introduces a great new way for NJPTA members to fundraise for their chapters while offering them the opportunity to save money with a company that specializes in insuring members of the educational community," stated Judy Hyde, President of the NJPTA.

Teachers Auto Insurance Company of New Jersey provides exclusive low rates and unique auto insurance services to active and retired employees of New Jersey licensed educational facilities, members of the New Jersey Parent Teacher Association and other school professionals.
