MMRMA Announces $1 Million Distribution from State Pool Loss Fund

Posted: Thursday, February 16, 2017

Based on the recommendation of the State Pool Committee, the Board declared a special distribution of $1.0 million to current renewing State Pool members at its January meeting.  Current renewing State Pool members will also receive a share of the $23.7 million General Fund distribution that was declared at the February meeting.

The State Pool distribution is based on a recent analysis of the State Pool Loss Fund conducted by MMRMA’s consulting actuaries.  The analysis concluded that the State Pool Loss Fund is in excellent financial condition.  This distribution represents excess assets in the State Pool Loss Fund identified by employing the same method used to determine the General Fund excess net asset distribution.

The State Pool is a group of smaller MMRMA members.  Each State Pool member self-insures the first $50,000 of each casualty loss, including legal expenses.  The State Pool members deposit funds in a “pooled” State Pool Loss Fund, administered by MMRMA, which then pays their self-insured losses up to the $50,000 SIR.  Casualty losses in excess of the SIR are paid by MMRMA and its reinsurers.  For property and auto physical damage coverage, State Pool members can select deductibles as a means of retaining a portion of the risk.

This structure has worked very well and the MMRMA State Pool membership has now grown to 260 public entities.  With the recent trend toward consolidation of local government service delivery, we expect to see further growth in the State Pool membership as more joint special service districts and authorities are created.

State Pool members also have an active role in MMRMA governance.  The State Pool membership elects an individual to serve on the MMRMA Board of Directors.

In addition, MMRMA’s Governance Policies provide for a State Pool Committee.  The committee is comprised of nine individuals appointed by the MMRMA Board Chair.  The current members of the State Pool Committee are:

  • Rosalie A. King – NorthCare Network (Committee Chair)
  • Timothy Aho – Iron County
  • Jeffery B. Lawson – Cheboygan County
  • Amy Sullivan – City of Huntington Woods
  • Susan Vander Pol – Osceola County
  • Mike Welsch – AuSable Valley CMH
  • Del Wensley – Salem Township
  • Vacant seat

This is the third distribution from the State Pool Loss Fund and all State Pool members can be justifiably proud of this important milestone.
