Coverage for federal workers’ compensation, as required by the Longshore Act and its extensions, is provided by the Association to its Members on an unlimited statutory basis.
Signal is also approved to provide coverage for each of the extensions under the Longshore Act:
• Defense Base Act (DBA)

• The Nonappropriated Fund Instrumentalities
The Mutual facilitates placement for Incidental Maritime Employers’ Liability (“MEL”) coverage with a standard limit of $1m, for any one accident or occurrence, for all eligible Members. This Incidental MEL coverage is intended to cover the remote instance when a claim is brought by a USL&H employee, validly reported to Signal Mutual, alleging seaman status under the Jones Act or similar Maritime Acts.
