Safety group programs include schools, municipalities and manufactured housing associations. Commercial coverages are offered to safety groups with competitive premiums and enhanced coverages. Program members get more than just competitive pricing for the insurance coverages their operations need. They also have the possibility of receiving an annual dividend for good group loss experience. If a dividend is earned, the amount returned to members is in proportion to their premium paid to the group. This way, members can receive the maximum possible reduction in insurance costs even though losses of an individual member may be higher than other members in the group.
Businesses or institutions with similar hazards and exposures can be written as a target market. Typically, the total premium of the group is less than that of a safety group. Special coverage forms are assigned to offer enhanced coverages for the target market.
