Undeniable value that extends beyond policy limits—program highlights:

Members’ equity distribution

Our exceptional financial strength allows us to distribute a percentage of CIRMA’s Members’ Equity to eligible members. Over the last eleven years, total distributions have reached nearly $42M. CIRMA is the only insurance carrier returning equity to its members—not shareholders.

Premium neutral payroll audits

Our workers’ compensation payroll audits are premium neutral. This service ensures your premium remains predictable and eliminates the uncertainty of premium spikes or adjustments after the policy period has ended.
