THE NEW YORK STATE MUNICIPAL WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ALLIANCE

The Comp Alliance is a group self-insured workers' compensation program, designed exclusively for municipal corporations and school districts in New York State. Sponsored by the Association of Towns of the State of New York and the New York State Conference of Mayors (NYCOM), the Comp Alliance has more than 265 participating members.  Its main purpose remains today what it was in 1994 — to ensure that its members are able to meet their long-term workers' compensation liabilities while maintaining stable funding contributions.

When a municipality joins the Comp Alliance, it gets the tools its needs to keep its employees safe and successfully manage its workers’ compensation costs.  Our five in-house professional risk managers are organized by region so that a loss control representative is always close by to assist our members.  We encourage our members to assume leadership by promoting safety in the workplace, and our education and training programs help our members reduce the number of workplace injuries.  And when a workplace accident does occur, our dedicated claims staff works with the member to ensure that the claim is handled professionally and expeditiously, toward a safe and healthy return to work for the injured employee.    

Our commitment to fully funding our liabilities ensures that funds will be available to pay the continuing costs of lost wages and medical care long after an employee is injured.  Fully funding long-term liabilities up front also factors significantly in reducing our members’ future workers’ compensation costs, leading to greater budgetary stability year to year.  

Our Mission — to protect our members from long-term exposure to costly workers' compensation claims by providing a fiscally sound, comprehensive workers' compensation program that maintains the stable pricing necessary for municipal budgets.

WE ACCOMPLISH THIS BY:

  • Full funding of liabilities
  • Pro-active risk management services
  • Diligent claims management services
  • Understanding the needs of our members
