Public entity managers want to safeguard employees while protecting their municipalities from loss, but commercial coverage pricing volatility has made this increasingly difficult.  The Delaware Valley Workers’ Compensation Trust offers an alternative quality statutory workers’ compensation and employers’ liability coverage at stable rates often well below those offered by commercial carriers.  Focusing solely on public entities since its establishment in 1992, the Workers’ Compensation Trust combines the advantages and flexibility of group self-insurance with the safety and predictability of a fully insured program.  Trust members enjoy in-house claims adjudication and litigation management, customized injury and illness prevention services, and a wide array of exclusive value-added services including best-in-class training programs.  In addition, we return excess funds to members through cash dividends, multi-trust discounts, our Rate Stabilization Fund, and loss control grants, making the Trust an even more compelling option.

A New Way of Thinking about Workers’ Compensation Coverage

If you manage a public entity and have grown frustrated with commercial market premium swings or broker-sponsored programs designed to generate fees and commissions, we can help.  Allow us to provide a comprehensive proposal that will show you how the Delaware Valley Workers’ Compensation Trust can reduce your net costs while providing high quality services. Consider our Health Trust and/or Property & Liability Trust, too, and take full advantage of multi-trust discounts that further lower already attractive premium contributions.

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!

“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.”
