Why Choose Us

We are the answer the construction industry asked for — a workers’ comp fund built for the construction industry by the construction industry. “Industry Built, Industry Driven” isn’t just a catch phrase to us, it’s a fact. In 1997, some of the most experienced and brightest minds in the construction trades created a work comp fund to address the unique needs of Minnesota’s contractors, builders, remodelers, subcontractors, and suppliers. This group of innovative thinkers put safety at the core of every policy and procedure, realizing that reducing claims is the key to a sustainable fund. They understood that the relentless pursuit of creating the safest working conditions possible would not only benefit the health and welfare of our members’ workers but, as a self-insured fund, would do something traditional workers’ compensation companies cannot — make paying for workers’ comp an investment, not a profit draining cost.

Today, we are the #1 self-insured construction workers’ comp fund in the state of Minnesota and the 2017 MIIAB Company of Excellence. Since 1997, we’ve been helping our members keep their workers safe and workers’ comp costs down through customized safety training services, educational resources, and a proactive approach to claims management. Our nearly 800 members have chosen to join our self-insured fund because we make safety work, we make claims work, and that’s what makes workers’ comp work.
