Self-Insurance Pooling

NMC administers a self-insurance pool that provides coverage for member counties.

NMC and New Mexico counties collaborated and founded the Workers’ Compensation Fund in 1987, the Multi-Line Pool in 1989, and the Law Enforcement Pool in 1995. Effective January 1, 2020 the three pools merged into one self-insurance pool to create greater efficiency and financial strength, with all members signing a new joint powers agreement.
