Neither ACEC not the Trust endorses any one PLI provider. Rather, the objective is to offer a choice of providers for PLI coverage. Under the Deductible Assistance Program, the BIT may be able to defray all or part of your firm's deductible for automobile or property claims if you are an ACEC Member in good standing and participate in the BIT program. Once your claim is submitted and processed by The Hartford, you can request the return of your deductible amount up to $1,000 per claim. Download the form at www.acec.org/trusts/ to request deductible assistance from the BIT for processed property and auto claims.
