Local Government Insurance Trust
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.
