UCC Protect insurance offers coverage to address the unique needs of congregations and incorporated ministries such as camps, seniors’ homes, and education centres. 

This plan is the only insurance program endorsed by the Finance Unit of the General Council Office. Hub International is the broker, and the plan is underwritten by Royal Sun Alliance. Currently about half of all United Church congregations have chosen this coverage.

If your insurance is currently being handled by your local congregational insurance broker, HUB will honour that relationship and work with your local broker.
