For decades the Simon Wiesenthal Center was a satisfied customer of Chubb, a global insurance company that provides the center’s property insurance. Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and CEO of the center, even used Chubb to insure his home.
“We’ve never had any trouble with them,” Heir said, “until now.”
Chubb denied the center’s property-loss claims after the pandemic hit, a problem facing nonprofits insured by an array of companies. Now some groups are trying to force legal action or advocate for federal legislation that would help nonprofits and others make up for losses caused by the pandemic.
