Liability Insurance (EMSP)

Students also need to purchase Education Minnesota Student Program liability insurance before stepping into the classroom for their student teaching experiences. EMSP insurance is valid from September 1- August 31 each school year.

Here are instructions to obtain EMSP insurance:

  1. Go to the Education Minnesota union website
  2. Click “Student Members”
  3. Click “Join or Renew your Student Membership Today!”
  4. Click “Apply Online in the Related Links Box”
  5. Scroll down and fill out form
    Put the address that you would like your Education Minnesota Membership card to be mailed to you during the next semester. Be sure to leave the complimentary Instructor Magazine box checked. This is a free, one year subscription to this magazine. You only get this by registering online.
  6. Click continue
  7. Fill out next section with your credit or debit card information
    Note: Make a copy of the verification page that appears when you are done. Keep this copy some place safe. You will need this for proof of insurance before your card comes.

About two weeks after you apply online, you can return to the Education Minnesota union website, and register on the right hand side using your membership ID number. You choose your username and password. Please be sure to write it down including the email address that you put on the registration section. Your membership card will come in the mail to the address you provided when applying. It will take 6-8 weeks, but you can use the verification sheet to show you have membership.

After you have registered you can access everything on the site that is available to teachers.

The Access to Savings section is found under the log in section; you must log in to use this section. Type in your zip code or the name of a city or town and it will pull up all the places you can save money.
