Is your organization evaluating
its coverage and risk management strategies?

Let’s talk.


We are one of the largest municipal self-insurance pools in the state, rooted in the strength of more than 100 member cities and other public agencies that have banded together to manage risk. The California JPIA provides innovative solutions through a comprehensive portfolio of programs and services, including liability, workers’ compensation, pollution, property, and earthquake coverage, as well as extensive risk management training and loss control services.

Our success reflects the dedication of passionate staff, highly capable elected leaders, committed business partners, and most importantly, engaged and loyal members working to improve risk management in each of their organizations. The combined strength of our members yields operational savings and expanded purchasing power in the insurance market.

By joining the California JPIA, your agency will connect with a team that proactively seeks to mitigate risk through training and implementation of best practices. Not merely an insurance solution, membership in the California JPIA offers significant training resources and guidance on improving your agency and its operations.
