EXPLANATION OF DUES

PLRB provides your company with a stream of products and services, reducing your outside legal expense, on-line legal database charges, and supporting your claims, underwriting, legal, and training staffs with valuable information. With your support, PLRB and LIRB improve the condition of the claims industry.

Since the Property & Liability Resource Bureau are not-for-profit associations of insurance companies and underwriting organizations, our anticipated 2014 annual operating expenses are equitably allocated among the members on the basis of their respective premium writings as reflected in their 2012 direct written premiums in the lines of insurance we service.

Near the end of each year, our Board of Directors sets a Schedule of Membership Dues based on these premium writings of all the members and the approved budget for the forthcoming year.

PLRB dues are assessed on the following lines of business: fire, allied lines, Farmowners multiple peril, Homeowners multiple peril, commercial multiple peril (non-liability), inland marine, fidelity, mortgage guaranty, earthquake, burglary and theft, boiler and machinery, flood, and other property (non-auto).
