What We Offer
NLC Mutual provides reinsurance capacity for liability, property and workers’ compensation to its member owners. We work with our members to tailor coverage to address their unique needs. We also build additional resources to enhance our offerings, such as claims management, actuarial services, and an exclusive data warehouse & analytics tool (Mutual Insights, powered by Domo).
With built-in profit-sharing mechanisms and sustainable, long-term pricing, NLC Mutual is designed to be your pooling solution on all coverage lines. Our coverage offerings are customizable and flexible to meet the needs of your pool. Typical coverage lines are outlined below.
General Liability | Auto Liability | Public Officials Liability | Law Enforcement Liability
Property | Auto Physical Damage
Workers’ Compensation | Employer’s Liability
NLC Mutual is designed to be your pooling solution on all coverage lines. Unlike commercial reinsurers, our offerings are customizable and flexible. We work to create the right solutions for our members by constantly evaluating coverage options to meet evolving issues and situations.
Our sustainable, long-term pricing won’t drastically fluctuate with the whims of the market. Reinsurance rate calculations are based on real claim levels and experience, which ensure member pools are not priced out of needed coverage.
Through Mutual Insights members access powerful and sophisticated data analytics and visualizations.
This program—built on the Domo business intelligence platform—offers a proven value-added experience for individual pools as well as the collective membership.
To help members get the most out of Mutual Insights, we have developed a collection of videos and resources to help you become more proficient in Domo. This library of tips will continue to grow and so will your skills.

Actuarial Consulting Services help members better handle the complexities of existing and emerging risks. Our dedicated Mutual staff, sometimes in collaboration with NLC-RISC, provide evolving services including:
Claims Projections for Emerging Risk Exposures
Actuarial estimates identify emerging exposures. For example, actuaries work with members to model current COVID-19 and PTSD workers’ compensation presumption claims.
Mutual staff present on important topics such as reserving, pricing, and capital modeling. Educational sessions are offered through NLC-RISC conferences/webinars, and member Board of Trustees meetings.
Strategic Risk Management & Data Insights
Mutual provides strategic consulting services to member pools on a variety of topics, such as reviewing pricing methodology, approach to enterprise risk management, and carried reserve level. Additionally, staff brings an actuarial perspective to the reports and visualizations that members develop through the Mutual-sponsored data project in DOMO.
Risk Financing & Captive Solutions
Through modeling and quantifying unique risk exposures in a variety of lines of business, Mutual actuary staff can help members optimize their retention, pooling, and commercial purchase of risk. When applicable, they can also explore creative risk financing solutions to members’ reinsurance needs, such as the formation and restructuring of existing captive structures.
