West Elgin Mutual Insurance strives to provide equal treatment and benefit through its services and facilities. We respect the dignity, independence and equality of persons with disabilities.
West Elgin Mutual Insurance employees, directors and third-party contractors accommodate the use of personal assistive devices that enable a person with a disability to access our services and facilities. Assistive devices include and are not limited to: GPS, mobility devices, personal oxygen tanks, mini pocket recorders and communication boards. We are committed to removing barriers to access for people with disabilities and welcome feedback about how we can improve our customer service.
West Elgin Mutual Insurance employees, directors and third-party contractors recognize a person’s right to have her or his service animal with her or him at all times. Service animals are permitted to be with their person in all West Elgin Mutual Insurance facilities.
When a person with a disability is accompanied by a support person, West Elgin Mutual Insurance employees, directors and third-party contractors will ensure that both persons are permitted to enter the premises. Confidentiality will be maintained and West Elgin Mutual Insurance will never impede a person with a disability’s access to her or his support person while on the premises.
A support person is a person who accompanies the person with a disability in order to help with communication, mobility, personal car or medical needs or to help with access to goods or services. The support person can be a paid support worker, volunteer, a friend or family member.
West Elgin Mutual Insurance reserves the right to waive the admission fee to any event or function for a support person who is accompanying a person with a disability. If West Elgin Mutual Insurance is charging an admission fee in connection with a support person’s presence at an event or function, we will post a notice providing information in advance about the amount that is payable.
When communicating with a person with a disability, West Elgin Mutual Insurance’s employees, directors and third-party contractors are committed to doing so in a manner that is respectful and dignified.
