Minnesota Self-Insurers’ Security Fund

Welcome to the Minnesota Self-Insurers’ Security Fund (SISF), a non-profit corporation authorized and governed by Minnesota Statutes Chapter 79A. Established in 1988, the purpose of the Minnesota Self-Insurers’ Security Fund is to guarantee that, if a self-insured member becomes bankrupt or is insolvent, that member’s injured workers will continue to have their workers’ compensation benefits paid.

All private employers (excluding the State or its political subdivisions) who wish to be self-insured for their Minnesota workers’ compensation liability must first obtain a Certificate of Authority¬†from the Minnesota Department of Commerce. The self-insurers automatically become members to the Minnesota Self-Insurers’ Security Fund.
