1. Little League® Insurance Programs

The AIG Group Insurance Program is specially designed for chartered Little Leagues to create affordable protection for all eligible participants and lower program costs to local leagues.

2. How to Submit an Accident Insurance Claim

Notification of a claim for an eligible member under the league’s Accident Insurance should be filed with Little League International within 20 days of the incident. Once we receive the complete claim form, the claimant will be assigned a claim number for any information that is submitted for the accident. The claim form should be submitted as soon as possible so we can begin a record of the accident and then the claimant can submit all itemized bills (includes procedure and diagnosis codes) from the medical providers as well as any primary insurance explanation of benefits (if applicable) for any treatments for the accident.

Please put in writing a short narrative of what took place; include the date of loss and the date of discovery. Please attach a police report including the phone number and address of the police department so that the insurance carrier can correspond with them. Also attach proof of ownership and proof of value of those items stolen. This can be canceled checks or cash receipt. If the items were donated, please obtain the value from a retailer. If the loss was sustained by a volunteer embezzlement, then you can do an in-house audit, and provide a copy when submitting your claim.
