Our History
Established in January 1986 by our two founding Members, Signal is the largest self-insured group provider of Longshore benefits in the United States, created with the objective of meeting the demands of multiple industries for reasonable and stable workers’ compensation insurance rates.

Since our inception, we have become the dominant provider in the industry, with a diverse and successful Membership. We have continued to innovate and adapt over the years, with introductions of new offerings such as the State Act Program, SafeShore and most recently the formation Sage Adjusting. We look forward to continuing to expand and diversify our Membership and service for years to come.

Our Management

To ensure streamlined management of the Mutual, Signal has retained the services of Charles Taylor Mutual Management Services to oversee day to day affairs of the Association. Charles Taylor is a global leader in insurance management, with roots in claims handling for maritime industry, so the partnership between these two entities was a natural fit.

Charles Taylor Mutual Management Services cover every aspect of operations for their clients – from underwriting, claims management and delivery of safety services, to regulatory, accounting, technology support, governance and investment management.
