Get in touch with IMWCA

IMWCA has a full in-house team to help with your workers’ compensation needs.

Coverage & Services

Our primary coverage is workers’ compensation. Once a member has workers’ compensation coverage through IMWCA, they may purchase our Chapter 411 Medical Only coverage or our non-statutory volunteer coverage.

The IMWCA team

Our staff, employees of the Iowa League of Cities, are very familiar with government operations and understand the inherent risks of the jobs performed by local government employees.


Being financially stable is critical to ensure our members know we will be there for them when needed. As a public sector risk-sharing pool, IMWCA operates under the same accounting and investment laws and regulations as our members. We are audited annually by an independent auditor and have received the Government Finance Officers Association award each year since 1990.

Board Members

We are governed by a nine-member board of trustees, all currently serving elected and appointed officials elected by the IMWCA membership. As a self-insured risk pool, we were created for our members and are managed by our members.
