Message From the President - Rate Changes

By  Michael Fann | 4/19/2023 10:30 am

At the end of February, our Board of Directors met to consider rates, coverages and dividends for the upcoming fiscal year. As part of this important evaluation, Public Entity Partners engages independent actuaries to conduct a detailed rate review and capital adequacy study. We conduct a rate study every other year and a capital adequacy study every three to five years. These reviews ensure that our rates are adequate to cover claims and that our pool can withstand a catastrophic loss, allowing us to be there for our members for years to come.


PEP Celebrates 43rd Anniversary

In October 1979, the City of Hendersonville and the City of Athens entered into an interlocal agreement to cooperatively manage their claims exposures and costs, which created the entity that today is known as Public Entity Partners (PEP). Our organization was one of the first statewide municipal liability pools established in the nation. Forty-three years later, Public Entity Partners works with more than 500 members representing more than 90% of non-self-insured Tennessee municipalities.

Member Dividend Program

By  Halie Gallik | 7/7/2021 4:30 pm

Public Entity Partners was formed in 1979 as a not-for- profit, risk sharing pool that provides risk management products and services to governmental entities in Tennessee. One way we live out our commitment to members is to return excess net surplus in the form of a dividend. Since the program was created in 1996, our members have received over $140 million in member dividends/ surplus returns. This directly benefits local governments across the state of Tennessee.

Because of this planning, PE Partners has remained fully operational and ready to serve our members.
