Loss Control Services Associate

Who We Are

Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT) is a member-owned association authorized by state law, wholly owned and managed by its local government members. LGIT’s main purpose is to provide joint self-insurance programs or pools for towns, cities and counties in the State of Maryland. The concept is simple - rather than paying premiums to buy insurance from an insurance company, local governments contribute those premiums into a jointly owned fund. The money in that fund is used to pay for the members’ claims, losses, and expenses. LGIT is an equal opportunity employer. Submit resume to: jobs@lgit.org.
