Pooled Liability Program

BCJPIA provides General Liability, Auto Liability, and Errors & Omissions coverage for its Members in excess of the Member’s retained limit, or Self-Insured Retention (SIR), up to $1,000,000 per occurrence. Each Member retains the portion of every loss that falls within their SIR, ranging from $5,000 to $500,000. BCJPIA is also a member of the California Affiliated Risk Management Authorities (CARMA), a risk sharing joint powers authority. When losses exceed the $1,000,000 per occurrence limit, CARMA provides excess coverage. The third party claims administrator for the BCJPIA Pooled Liability Program is Acclamation Insurance Management Services (AIMS).

BCJPIA retains the first $1,000,000 of each loss for workers’ compensation and employer’s liability and shares the risk among the members.  For more information about this program, as well as additional layers of excess coverage in place, please contact our staff.

Pooled Property Program

The risk sharing All-Risk Property Program covers the Member’s buildings, building contents, and vehicles parked on the Entity’s premises. The coverage limit is primarily the scheduled Total Insured Values (TIV) of the Members’ property; however, there are sub-limits for certain exposures. In most cases, the coverage provides replacement cost without reduction for depreciation. This program provides coverage from the Members’ deductible of $10,000 or $50,000 to the Alliant Property Insurance Program (APIP) deductible of $250,000. The APIP portion of the program also provides coverage for the sudden and accidental breakdown of Boiler & Machinery equipment.
