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

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.
