PEC Plus Memberships

The PEC has two levels of membership available which include insurance: Individual Plus and Family Plus. Individual Plus includes your PEC membership, plus the personal excess liability insurance for the member. The Family Plus membership includes your normal PEC membership, plus the personal excess liability insurance for the member, member’s spouse, and any permanent residents of your household under the age of 18.

If you decide to purchase the insurance, the PEC must receive the following:

  • A payment made online at the PEC website or your application for PEC membership
  • Your personal check for payment of either the Individual Membership Plus or the Family Membership Plus, made out to “PEC (Pennsylvania Equine Council)”
If you have already sent in your membership application, or you are a PEC Lifetime Member, you may purchase the insurance at any time during the year by sending a check to the PEC for:

  • $21.00* for Individual Personal Excess Liability Insurance, or
  • $40.00* for Family Personal Excess Liability Insurance.

Please include a note with the name and address in which you have your membership for confirmation.

*Both plans include a $2.00 processing and handling fee.

Your insurance coverage will begin the day your application and check are received and processed by the PEC Membership Chair. All policies expire December 31. Please note that due to various mail delivery timeframes, inclement weather and other unforeseen circumstances, processing could take 2-3 weeks. Your coverage is not in place until your application has been processed. You will receive a PEC membership card in the mail, as well as confirmation of coverage from Equisure. If you do not receive either of these items within 3-4 weeks, please call the PEC at 888-304-0281.
