On September 23, 1992, six public entities formed the New Jersey Municipal Self Insurers’ Joint Insurance Fund. These charter members joined together, pooling their resources in an effort to obtain property and casualty insurance, including workers’ compensation at a competitive price.
Each member had an ownership and a duty to define the structure and coverages that they would have, which set the stage for the next 30 years.
Currently, the fund represents members from Bergen, Burlington, Hudson, and Union Counties. Each member retains a self insured retention of at least $50,000 or greater.
NJMSIJIF is a joint insurance fund that commenced operations September 23, 1992 in an effort to provide a comprehensive insurance program to municipalities with similar exposures and risks through the pooling of resources. We strive to provide predictability and long-term stability of pricing, while managing risk through extensive safety and claims’ management programs.
