About Us

The Virginia Risk Sharing Association (VRSA) is the first and most financially sound group self-insurance pool in the Commonwealth. For over 40 years, VRSA has provided auto, property, liability, and workers’ compensation coverage to more than 460 local political subdivisions across Virginia. Pooling is a risk financing mechanism where members contribute to a shared fund that in turn pays the losses and risk management expenses of the participating members.

VRSA is designed to meet the needs of all Virginia public bodies – from the smallest to the largest. We are committed to reducing our members’ total cost of risk through expansive coverages, services and resources. Our consulting practices include communications, human resources, local government, public safety and risk management. Our members contribute nearly $60 million in annual contribution to the pool. To meet the needs of our members, VRSA employs claims professionals in our worker’s compensation and property and liability claims departments. VRSA also employs safety, communications and human resources consultants who provide risk management services to mitigate liabilities, as well as underwriting and member services staff who provide policy and underwriting support. Our information services and communications staff keep our website up-to-date and interactive programs working.

For over 40 years, VRSA has been the innovative, reliable and financially stable risk management partner for Virginia local political subdivisions.
