Board Approves $38.6 Million Distribution to Members

Posted: Wednesday, February 22, 2012


At its February 16 meeting, MMRMA’s Board of Directors acted to declare a $38,644,191 distribution of excess net assets to current renewing MMRMA members. The Board also approved the 2012 Net Asset Policy Report, including the results of the most recent capital adequacy analysis, which determines the necessary net assets needed. This will be our sixth and largest distribution of excess net assets to current renewing members. With this distribution, MMRMA has distributed over $95,000,000 to its renewing members since 2006. The following table shows a history of these distributions:

Fiscal Year




2006 $ 3,696,996 $ 3,696,996
2007 7,573,675 11,270,671
2008 15,766,399 27,037,070
2010 10,260,745 37,297,815
2011 19,660,124 56,957,939
2012 38,644,191 95,602,130


This distribution is the largest component of an over $45,000,000 deployment of excess net assets for the benefit of our membership this year. The other uses of excess net assets include:

  • Rate Relief – Last year the Board began to deploy a portion of excess net assets for rate relief. This year, $3,200,000 will be used to lower the rates we use to determine member contributions.
  • Michigan Vehicle Assessments - Net assets are used to pay the Michigan Catastrophic Claims Association (MCCA) vehicle assessment for members. The annual per vehicle assessment increased to $145.00 in July 2011. It is estimated that we will pay more than $2,000,000 in assessments on behalf of the membership this year.
  • Michigan Assigned Claims Plan – Mandatory assessments of $300,000 to the Michigan Assigned Claims Plan will be paid using excess net assets.
  • No Fault Automobile Coverage - Net assets are used to provide members with enhanced no fault automobile coverage. With Michigan having one of the most costly no fault statutes in the nation, this is a significant benefit.
  • Coverage for Volunteers - Net assets are used to underwrite liability coverage for volunteers.
  • Risk Avoidance Program (RAP) Grants - Each year, $750,000 is allocated for direct grants to members for various risk management and loss control programs. RAP Grants are awarded through MMRMA’s Membership Committee.

Once again, this is very good news for members and, based on the distribution rules adopted by the Board, most members will receive their share of this distribution following their membership renewal.

MMRMA’s ability to provide these benefits to its members is a direct reflection of strong performance results over a sustained period of time. Many factors contributed to these favorable results, including better than expected loss trends in recent years, member responsiveness to risk control recommendations, good management practices by members that resulted in fewer losses, and, most importantly, improved investment results through June 30, 2011. However, the most central factor that allows MMRMA to deploy excess net assets is the long-term commitment that members have made to MMRMA. Without your loyalty and ongoing support of this fine organization, these benefits would not be possible. Thank you.
