Welcome to the National Council of Self-Insurers. Established in 1946, the National Council of Self-Insurers is and always has been the only national organization devoted to the self-insurance of workers' compensation.

The NCSI has always believed that the workers' compensation system, properly administered by the states, is a vital part of the economic and social fabric of the United States of America. The Council aims to preserve and to protect it, as the most effective and equitable means of resolving claims for industrial and occupational injuries and diseases between the employers and employees.

The National Council of Self-Insurers is an organization of corporate, state association and professional members. The Council represents 3500 employers.

The National Council of Self-Insurers was created on June 4, 1946, when seven state associations signed the "Articles of Agreement."

The "Articles," signed by the Associations of California, Idaho, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Utah, said in part, "Since associations are limited to the States in which they operate, are necessarily excluded from conferences of a national character, and since such conferences, touching upon matters entrusted to our care, are now occurring and will continue to occur, therefore: It is agreed that inasmuch as a national voice for Self-Insurers has become imperative if their interests are to become adequately represented, the undersigned State Associations of Self-Insurers shall and hereby do, federate themselves in an organization to be known as the National Council of State Self-Insurers Associations."
