FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 14, 2019

Michigan Municipal League Insurance Boards Announce 2019 Member Dividends

 

ANN ARBOR, Michigan – Members of the Michigan Municipal League’s insurance programs—almost a thousand cities, villages, counties, townships, and other public entities—will share dividends totaling $10.8 million in 2019.

The Liability & Property Pool Board of Directors has voted to return $2.1 million in dividends to member-owners who renew their insurance coverage in 2019. Over the previous five years, the Pool has returned $11.6 million in dividends, corresponding to about 12 percent of members’ premiums during the same period.

The Workers’ Compensation Fund Board of Trustees has authorized dividends as well, returning $8.7 million in equity to its renewing owner-members. The Fund has returned $43 million in dividends over the previous five years, representing about 30 percent of members’ premiums over the same period.

”When members work hard to improve safety and reduce risk through prevention, training, policies, and other steps, we are able to return the resulting claims savings back to their communities, including in the form of dividends,” said Michael Forster, Director of Risk Management Services for the League, “We thank our members for their continued efforts, which are key to the ongoing success of the League and its insurance programs.”

The MML Liability & Property Pool and Workers’ Compensation Fund are nonprofit self-insurance pools owned and governed by their members. The programs maintain rock-solid financial positions and offer stable, cost-effective, and broad coverage options. Expert risk management services are provided by municipal risk specialists with decades of experience.

For over 100 years, the Michigan Municipal League has sought to represent, inspire, and educate its members through state and federal legislative and legal advocacy, policy initiatives, redevelopment and civic innovations assistance, grants, insurance and risk management, annual wage surveys, and a host of other services. Elected and appointed officials benefit from trainings in everything from the nuts and bolts of governance to the big-picture vision of Placemaking. The organization offers a treasure trove of information and resources including handbooks and fact sheets; sample policies, contracts, and ordinances; publications on topical issues; and a dedicated team of helpful member services staff.

For more information, contact Michael Forster, Director, Risk Management Services; 734‑669‑6340 or mforster@mml.org.
