Why Self Insurance?
Ownership and Dividends
KMIT is owned by its member municipalities. The members have a direct voice in KMIT management. Each of the seven Trustees on the Board is a manager or elected official of one of the member municipal entities. Because the members own the Trust, they retain investment income and surpluses, which may be returned to the members with the State's approval.
Risk Management and Loss Prevention
KMIT members have access to professional risk improvement services to increase their level of workplace safety. KMIT has engaged East Coast Risk Management, to help our members achieve compliance with the Commonwealth's Accident and Illness Prevention Program elements. We also provide on-site consultations, risk assessment scoring, and training on relevant safety topics.
KMIT members enjoy the benefits of Inservco's comprehensive claims management. The online first notice of loss starts the professional management of each claim, letting members be active partners in the resolution of each claim and returning an injured employee to work as soon as possible.
KMIT utilizes outstanding professionals to assist in the management of your Trust.
