What Makes Us Different

The Delaware Valley Trusts are risk sharing pools with over 150 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. “

Don Delamater
Manager
Lower Providence Township

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.”

Daniel K. Kerr
Manager

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.

Hostile Work Environments and Workplace Harassment

Open to DVPLT members at no cost.

This program will provide an overview of how to prevent, recognize, report and remediate all forms of a hostile work environment and workplace harassment. It will take a practical approach by providing numerous real-life examples of potential hostile work environments and workplace harassment. It is also designed to illustrate the complexities and potential subjectivity of what constitutes a “hostile work environment” and educate attendees on the relevant laws.

Our speaker, Gina M. Ameci, Esq. of Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney, P.C., will address all protected categories, such as gender, race, national origin or ethnicity, religion, disability, age and others. Finally, her presentation will provide best practices for the workplace – obeying the law on these issues is necessary, but employers should aim for a higher standard of professionalism, civility and mutual respect.
