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

What Makes Us Different

The Delaware Valley Trusts Advantage: Managed Risk. Collective Rewards.

When it comes to selecting health, workers’ compensation, or property and liability insurance, public entities need stability and superior coverage at the lowest responsible cost. At the Delaware Valley Trusts we understand. Our members enjoy stable rates that defy insurance industry trends while taking advantage of comprehensive benefits, cash dividends, rate credits, multi-trust discounts, superior member service, and a wide array of exclusive value-added services.

Let us manage your risk while you realize the rewards.

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.
