MAS Insurance Trust (MASIT)

County governments are responsible for millions of dollars’ worth of public property.  Routine county government activities such as road maintenance, law enforcement, and jail operations expose counties to frequent and sometimes large liability claims.  Recognizing these risks, the Mississippi Association of Supervisors (MAS)  formed and administers a program of property and casualty self-insurance funds.  This program, the Mississippi Association of Supervisors Insurance Trust (MASIT), provides to Mississippi counties low cost but broad insurance coverage along with a range of risk management services.  MASIT provides all of this in the form of a nonprofit entity that is owned solely by its county members. In addition to upfront savings and member ownership,  surplus funds will be returned to  county government members in the form of dividends or premium reductions.  This program is run for and by county government and since its inception MASIT has saved counties, therefore taxpayers, in excess of $8.5 million in premiums.

Our mission is to be the insurance provider of choice for our county government family.
