What Makes Us Different

The Delaware Valley Trusts are risk sharing pools with over 160 public entity members in Pennsylvania and Delaware.

Managed Risk. Collective Rewards.

When it comes to selecting health, workers’ compensation, or property & liability insurance, public entities need predictability and superior coverage at the lowest responsible cost. Delaware Valley Trusts members enjoy stable rates that defy industry trends while taking advantage of broader coverage, cash dividends, rate credits, multi-trust discounts, exceptional member service, and a wide array of exclusive value-added options. See why our risk-sharing pools offer a compelling, cost-effective alternative to the volatile commercial market.

Testimonials

As a Borough Manager, I am constantly blown away by the response I receive as a member of the Delaware Valley Trusts. The Trust’s value-added programs such as training, legal guidance and loss control resources are more than just benefits – they set the DVT apart from any other liability coverage provider!

Testimonials

“I can’t say enough about the high-quality customer service provided by the DVT staff. It is always nice to speak with someone who knows you and whom you have actually met face to face and not just contacting an impersonal call center. “

Testimonials

“The most positive aspect about becoming a member was access to DVT staff who were very supportive during our transition to DVT initially, and have remained so year after year. DVT offers prompt and professional support at every level of the organization.”

Testimonials

The goals of the Trusts are the most closely aligned with the goals of our elected officials in providing quality health care to our employees than the other trusts and commercial providers. In addition, the service provided by the Trust is outstanding.

Testimonials

I can’t say enough about how the Delaware Valley Workers’ Compensation program continues to provide great benefits and excellent service to its participants over the many years the program has been in effect. We particularly appreciate the assistance of Peter Erndwein and Risk Control team for their help to keep our employees working safe. The Rate Stabilization Fund, multi-trust discount, dividend and loss control/safety grants are just icing on the cake.

The nature of today’s work means that talent integration is more important than ever yet we face unprecedented challenges given a workforce that spans four generations. This workshop explores perceptual blind spots, generational diversity as a gateway to other types of diversity, hiring and managing individuals from different age cohorts, effective communication, and always delivering value to those you serve. Case studies relevant to municipal environments will be examined. Turn generational gridlock into organizational synergy and leave with specific solutions for your organization.

Lunch is provided. Registration closes two weeks prior to scheduled training date.

Property & Liability Trust

Establishing a Rental Property Inspection Program

In partnership with the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs, the Delaware Valley Property & Liability Trust (DVPLT) is pleased to offer up to 20 full scholarships (limit two scholarships per member entity).

Rental properties that are improperly managed may have a negative impact upon neighboring property values, increased police services and property maintenance issues. In many communities, rental properties are older and often non-code compliant. One course of action is a Rental Property Inspection Program. Before municipal officials, enact such an ordinance there are many issues to consider. This session will review a Rental Property Inspection Program and focus on the process a municipality needs to go through to implement an ordinance to effectively manage and execute a successful inspection program.

This program has been approved by the PA Continuing Education Board for three (3) hours of substantive law, practice and procedure CLE credit.

The cost to attend is $150/PSAB members and $200/Non-PSAB members. You must register directly with PSAB (see below).

Probable Cause Training for CDL Supervisory Personnel

In partnership with the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS), the Delaware Valley Trusts is pleased to offer 20 full scholarships (limit two scholarships per member entity) for this course.

Description:  State and federal regulations require every employer who has CDL employees driving vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating or operating weight of more than 26,001 pounds used on public roads to participate in a drug and alcohol testing program. These same regulations also require that such employers train all personnel who supervisor employees with CDLs in handling suspected on-the-job drug or alcohol use. This workshop addresses these federal requirements by providing supervisory personnel with a working understanding of the federal CDL regulations, including on-the-job probable cause procedures. In addition to those supervisory personnel required to attend, all CDL employees should attend this workshop to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding this important public safety training. Eligible for 2 PMGA credits.

Cost: $35/PSATS members and $45/Non-PSATS members. You must register directly with PSATS (see below).
