Office of Insurance, Loss Control & Claims
We now have First Aid classes available. Until online registration is available, contact Mel Lane to register.
The Office of Insurance, Loss Control & Claims (INLOCC) is responsible for managing the property and casualty risks of the University
We purchase the University's insurance (with the exception of life and health insurance), provide loss prevention and loss control and related safety services, and adjust all related claims. This includes property claims, liability claims, auto claims, athletic injuries, and others.
We also administer the self insurance fund. This is a systematic means of using large deductibles (retentions) to distance ourselves from the fluctuations of insurance markets, and to control the cost of commercial insurance. As an example, if we have a fire in one of our buildings, we will be responsible for the first $100,000 of the claim.
In 2005 the University formed a captive insurance company. This is an insurance company owned by IU and servicing IU, only. Old Crescent Insurance Company began operations February 1, 2005.
As you may guess, we stress loss prevention and control. Loss prevention means the loss never happens. Examples of loss prevention measures are good housekeeping and driving safely. Loss control means limiting a loss when one occurs. A good example is the use of sprinkler systems to control fires.
If a loss does occur, our staff of adjusters investigate and adjust the claim. If the claim is large enough to involve commercial insurance carriers, we act as the interface with them. University departments deal with us, and we deal with the commercial insurance world.
