In the spring of 1882, Thomas Caldecot Chubb and his son Percy opened their marine underwriting business in the seaport district of New York City. Having collected $1,000 from each of 100 prominent merchants to start their venture, they focused on insuring ships and cargoes. The Chubbs were adept at turning risk into success, often by helping their policyholders prevent disasters before they occurred. By the turn of the century, Chubb had established strong relationships with the insurance agents and brokers who placed their clients' business with Chubb underwriters, and the original subscribers enjoyed a substantial return on their investment in the young company.
The Chubb Corporation was formed in 1967 and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1984. It ranks among the top 10 publicly traded insurance organizations based on revenues in the United States.
ChubbChoice benefits begin on the first month following 30 days of eligible service. Chubb pays most of the cost for your ChubbChoice benefits and you can often use tax-effective pre-tax dollars to pay your share of the cost.
Horizon Blue Cross/Blue Shield of New Jersey provides Chubb's national preferred provider organization (PPO) network and is offered in all Chubb U.S. locations. Other plans, including different PPO network plans and health maintenance organizations (HMOs), are also available in many Chubb locations. Your eligible dependents (your spouse or qualifying domestic partner and children) may also be enrolled for medical coverage when you are enrolled.
The dental plan encourages preventive care and covers most dental services. Two point-of-service options are offered in all Chubb locations with the option of a dental maintenance organization (DHMO). When you use network providers you can reduce your out-of-pocket costs. When enrolled in a point-of-service coverage option, you can obtain your dental care from any dentist you wish and still have coverage. Your eligible dependents (your spouse or qualifying domestic partner and children) can be enrolled for dental coverage when you are enrolled.

Chubb offers two types of spending accounts - a Health Care Spending Account and a Dependent Care Spending Account - to provide a way for you to lower your taxable income by setting aside money pre-tax for expenses you know you will have to pay during the year. By making pre-tax contributions to one or both spending accounts and submitting eligible expenses for reimbursement, you can save money on health care expenses not covered by insurance and/or child/elder care cost.
