AMERICORPS SENIORS RSVP PROGRAM BENEFITS
CIMA Supplemental Insurance
During the hours which you volunteer (including driving time to and from the opportunity), AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP membership provides supplemental insurance, at no cost to you. What this means is that, while you probably already have insurance, our program picks up any out-of-pocket expenses you may incur should you have an accident during your volunteer time. This is an automobile and personal liability as well as accident insurance. AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP will cover/reimburse these out-of-pocket costs (including the breakage of glasses, hearing aids or dentures) up to $50,000 annually.
Life Insurance Benefit
In the event that a volunteer passes away during their hours of volunteering, AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP provides a $2,500 ‘death benefit’ to the volunteer’s indicated beneficiary.
Recognition / Appreciation
AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP believes that your service should be recognized! We think that volunteers like you are directly countering the adverse effects of living in our increasingly uninvolved and unengaged society, and we think that you should be applauded for all the work you do. We provide an annual recognition luncheon (during May or June) and several other intermittent rewards to our members (t-shirts, hats, etc.) to show our appreciation for all your work.
We provide matching services to our members, and if you have any friends who are interested in volunteering, but don’t know where to go, we can help there as well. We have partners in education, health, food insecurity, poverty alleviation, community gardens and more.
