FAQ about tuition insurance

What exactly is tuition insurance?

Tuition insurance is essentially a life insurance policy, but instead of being offered to each individual, as is the case in a typical life insurance policy, it is a policy for a collective. In this case, the collective is the group of BFIS families who have opted into the program.
