Top line performance... Bottom line results.

W

e empower employers to take control and reduce cost through self-insurance or large deductible programs for workers’ compensation, liability, and/or group health. We provide maximum flexibility in program design and management, executed by a designated team of experts. This allows us to focus on the client’s best interest and bottom line.

Our History

From our beginning in 1923 we have been in the business of servicing employers who self-fund risk – starting with workers’ compensation and general liability, adding group health in the 1960’s. Today, we are one of the few risk management companies that administer both casualty and employee benefit programs.

We have experience in establishing and administering workers’ compensation group self-insured programs and captives.
