Facts about the WEA Trust

[We have received the following information from the WEA Trust and are happy to publish it here in order to help clear up misconceptions about the WEA Trust.]

Good Morning-

There is a lot of misinformation about the WEA Trust circulating.  Below are several links to credible sources citing the accurate information.  We ask that you please share the facts if an opportunity arises:
  • The WEA Trust is NOT owned or operated by WEAC.  We are a separate, not-for-profit, Wisconsin-based insurance company that employees over 400 Wisconsinites. We are regulated by the Wisconsin Office of the Commissioner of Insurance (verify at http://oci.wi.gov).
  • WEA Trust does not contribute, as an organization, to any political parties—Republican or Democratic.  This can be verified via the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign’s online database: http://wisdc.org.
  • The school district market in Wisconsin is very competitive, and always has been.  Districts have the option to choose between us, our competitors, and several other state plan options.  Every day we compete to gain new business—sometimes we win, and sometimes we lose—but again, that is the nature of competition in Wisconsin.  For more information on districts saving with the Trust go to weatrust.com/districts-saving.
  • More facts are available at: www.weatrust.com/facts.
Please contact me directly if you would like to learn more about the WEA Trust, or where to find facts about the insurance market for Wisconsin school districts.  

Thank you,
Michelle Berryman
