Claims Assistance



Self-insurance pools like CIRSA are different-very different-from commercial carriers.  We are a member-owned organization, which means that you have influence over the programs and services we provide.  Since CIRSA is a public entity, we don’t sell through brokers, and have no motive other than serving our members.  Our members’ interests always come first.

CIRSA Membership Advantage

  • Partnership—We proactively identify and manage risk, improve the claims experience and work collaboratively with all members to cut losses.
  • An Equity Stake that Builds—Your contribution buys an equity interest in CIRSA that can increase every year, potentially lowering your future contributions.
  • Essential Risk Management Services—Our experienced staff and training team deliver loss prevention, claims, and coverage assistance services unmatched by traditional carriers. 
  • Public Entity Expertise—For more than 30 years, we’ve served only Colorado municipalities and affiliated public entities. We understand your needs and provide coverage programs specifically developed to meet them.
  • Friendly, Personal Attention—You’ll work with a dedicated team of risk management professionals who are ready to help by taking some of the work and worry off your shoulders.

Only Colorado municipalities and their affiliated public entities are eligible for CIRSA membership.



Any municipality that is a member of the Colorado Municipal League can join CIRSA.
