Caitlin Morgan can help you set up an RRG for your clients for their liability exposures. Our experienced staff can assist you in determining whether this alternative solution makes sense.
A Risk Retention Group (RRG) operates under the auspices of the 1986 Risk Retention Act (RRA) and is a group self-insurance plan or group captive insurer for the purpose of assuming and spreading risk for commercial liability exposure of its members. All liability exposures, including General Liability, Errors and Omissions, Directors and Officers, Medical Malpractice, Professional Liability, and Product Liability of its owners can be covered. It does not extend to Workers’ Compensation, Property insurance, or to personal lines insurance.
Members of an RRG must be engaged in similar businesses and have similar or related liability exposures among each other. In addition, authorization under the federal statute allows a group to be chartered in one state, but able to engage in the business of insurance in all states, subject to certain specific and limited restrictions.
