Our Local Roots Run Deep
It all started in 1982. At the time, MIIA's mission was to promote safety and loss prevention for municipal employees. And that we did.
The practices we pioneered led to reduction in on-the-job injuries. That in turn meant lower Workers Compensation insurance premiums for cities and towns across the state. Now more than 40 years later, those coverages have expanded through the formation of MIIA Property & Casualty Group and the MIIA Health Benefits Trust. The MIIA entities are nonprofit organizations governed by Boards of Directors and Trustees composed primarily of government officials from member municipalities - providing a unique understanding and perspective by, of and for local government.
Mission & Goals
MIIA was formed as an organization committed to the principles of trust, integrity, service, partnership and competence. It is governed with a unique understanding of the needs and perspectives of local government. Now, after more than four decades, we are more convinced than ever that the MIIA model is sound, and that these operating values are vitally important. Our Mission is to serve the insurance needs of the local governments in the Commonwealth. We accomplish this through the following stated goals:
