Club Insurance Programs

Our Property & Casualty Insurance and Medical, Life & Dental coverage has offered custom designed state-of-the-art programs since 1964. With over 200 clubs participating, they are the largest association-sponsored insurance programs in the United States.

In 1998 the MGA introduced a 401(k) retirement plan for club employees. The program is a Great West product and offers clubs the opportunity to take advantage of the group purchasing power of all MGA clubs.
