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.”

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.

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.

De-Escalation for Police Encounters with People in Mental Health Crisis

DVWCT and DVPLT Scholarship Opportunity

In partnership with the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs (PSAB), the Delaware Valley Trusts is pleased to offer 15 full scholarships (limit two scholarships per member entity) for this program.

Police today are dealing with people in mental health crisis much more frequently than in the past, and these encounters can be dangerous for both officers and subjects.  In many incidents, de-escalation techniques can be used to reduce the risk to everyone involved, and help officers safely resolve these situations.  Ashley Heiberger, retired police officer, will provide practical information regarding how de-escalation may reduce the need for force.

Cost:  $100/PSAB members and $150/Non-PSAB members. You must register directly with PSAB (see below).
