About PSATS Trustees

Since 1959, the PSATS Trustees Insurance and Retirement Services have been offering a full range of quality insurance products to its 1,450-member townships. More than 4,000 township officials, employees and family members are covered under our health, Medicare Advantage, dental, disability, vision/hearing and life insurance plans. We also offer a defined benefit pension plan, a defined contribution plan (401-a) and a 457(b)-deferred compensation plan.

The PSATS Trustees Insurance and Retirement Services is governed by a Board of Trustees, made up of Association members, and administered by experienced insurance professionals whose sole focus is the needs of our Association members. Townships have come to know and expect the highest level of customer service from the Association and the Trustees Insurance and Retirement Services.

In addition, PSATS has formed a partnership with Municipal Risk Management, Inc. of Pittsburgh to provide liability and property insurance and workers’ compensation for our member townships. MRM, who has been in business for more than 20 years, is governed by a board made up of elected municipal officials and authority managers. They understand the needs of those they serve.

Board of Trustees

A board of Trustees who are current or former township officials administers the Pennsylvania Townships Health Insurance Cooperative Trust, the Pennsylvania Municipalities Pension Trust, and the PSATS Unemployment Compensation Group Trust. The Trustees are responsible for overseeing the various programs and ensuring that they continue to meet the needs of our member townships.
