VASSP Legal Assistance Program

VASSP/NASSP offers a financial assistance program for legal services when a member’s position is threatened or there is the prospect of legal action from a job-related situation.  Assistance is not normally provided in criminal actions.  Special circumstances are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

To be eligible, you must have been a VASSP/NASSP member when the cause of legal action occurred.  For each year of uninterrupted membership, you are eligible for $1,000 in defense reimbursement (to the limit of $10,000).  Following a claims determination process, reimbursement for legal expenses will be paid by NASSP directly according to specific terms governing their insurance policies.
