Schools are Unique
With special pay modes, generous sick leave, unfunded mandates, plus an employee demographic of 75% females1 – schools have unique needs that may not be met with a generic benefits plan made for private corporations. Yet with all your uniqueness, you may be working with a generalized benefits provider who has limited knowledge of your specific circumstances.
Since 1960, American Fidelity has focused on providing a different opinion for school districts and currently serves over 4,300 districts across the country.
“Thanks to American Fidelity’s impeccable customer service and ability to go above and beyond, our benefits enrollment was smoother than I could have ever imagined.”

We Have the Expertise
Products Designed with Education Professionals in Mind
When designing our products and solutions, we focus on the specific needs of employers and employees in the education community. With a division dedicated to schools, we have the benefit of pricing our products to fit the budget constraints schools face. We customize our supplemental benefits with multiple plan options and elimination periods. From state health plans to sick leave policies and unique pay modes – we understand schools’ needs and create our products with you in mind.
Cost-Savings Solutions for Education
To maintain a compliant and attractive employee benefits program, you need dedicated personnel and funding. But with limited resources and a thinning budget, you can’t hire additional staff or pay the price that your needs require. By looking at education trends on a national and local level, and monitoring industry-related regulations, we create cost-savings solutions specifically for the education community.
Supporting Education Through Association Partnerships
We proudly partner with over 140 state and national education associations, and are an endorsed provider for the top business/administrative association for districts, the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) and the top national association for school employees, the National Education Association (NEA).
We utilize relationships like our ASBO Strategic Partner commitment to monitor member feedback, and understand the top concerns for school officials nationwide. In return, we work to ensure the services we offer are aligned with and meet the district and employees’ needs.
As a Strategic Partner of ASBO International, we participate in ASBO’s annual membership campaign which provides memberships for school administrators.
