Workers' Compensation Self-Insurance Fund

At-a-Glance

With a typical insurance provider, you’re a number. With GMA, you’re a valued member. Our Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Fund gives you benefits far beyond basic coverage. Learn how to reduce your costs, minimize your risk, and connect with funding opportunities for workplace safety efforts.
 

Benefits

Our Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurance Fund features benefits we customized based on more than 30 years of feedback from members like you.
 
  • Minimize lawsuits through statutory coverage. With statutory coverage (the minimum amount of coverage required by state law), injured employees receive basic remuneration to cover a wide variety of workplace incidents without any legal fault to you. That means you don’t go through the pain of costly lawsuits or appear to the public that you’re avoiding responsibility.
  • Enjoy a GMA-member owned and controlled fund. You’re not an anonymous member of a giant insurance pool. Instead, feel peace of mind knowing that Georgia municipalities, municipal authorities and commissions, housing authorities, regional commissions, and municipal school districts own and control the fund.
  • Prevent employee accidents before they happen. We offer proactive safety and risk control services including:
    • Loss control field service and individual member problem analysis to help you create safer work environments and take a look at your specific problems.
    • Onsite and regional training to help communicate the basics of safety and risk control to your staff while also talking about the latest developments in workers’ compensation law and practices.
    • Plenty of research and resources including a video lending library, periodic safety and risk control publications, and other communication materials.
  • Communicate easily about claims. We offer an online portal, a toll-free telephone number, or fax number for submitting claims. Whatever’s easiest for you.
  • Take advantage of grant opportunities to help fund worker safety initiatives. Our Safety and Liability Management Grant Fund offers opportunities for you to fund the purchase of equipment, receive training, and give you the ability to tackle expensive worker safety and liability initiatives.

Costs

Your contributions are based on:
 
  • Individual loss experience. We compare your past workers’ compensation experiences to state averages to calculate your insurance contribution.
  • Underwriting. A risk assessment makes sure you’re eligible for workers’ compensation, and for how much.
