Leaders in student and sports
Student, sports and camp insurance are our specialty. We
administer student plans for private and public schools as well
as colleges; sports plans for schools, colleges, youth sports
leagues, amateur sports teams, fraternal orgs., camps (day camps
and sports camps) and coverage for complete programs such as
recreation programs, CYO and PAL.
McCloskey Insurance was founded in 1975 by Bob McCloskey Sr., as a
general agency selling property and casualty, as well as life and health
The initial incursion into the special risk accident field consisted of
selling to K-12 schools and school districts in NJ, then adding youth
baseball and football leagues. The agency grew, and sales to colleges
were added; first, for intercollegiate athletic programs, then college
accident and sickness plans.
In 1984, straight from Rutgers University, Rob McCloskey joined the
agency, initially handling the
P & C products. Subsequently, Rob took over the sales in Massachusetts
and over the years became involved in all phases of the operation; which
now includes a full line of accident plans for youth sports,
organizations, private and parochial schools, camps, and sports
liability, as well as the K-12 and college plans.
It became apparent that in order to provide full service and satisfy
and service our clients, it was necessary to administer and pay the
claims for these programs, and our TPA operation was started in 1986. It
was made a separate entity, BMI Benefits, in 2004.
Over the years we have administered plans and programs for many
companies. At present we administer plans for Berkley A&H, AIG,
Chubb, Arch, Markel, Starr, US Fire, QBE and StarNet Insurance.
