Pension Funds and the
Insurance Zone Risk Pools

WHAT IS RISK POOLING?

The pooling of risk is fundamental to the concept of insurance. An insurance risk pool is a group of individuals whose health status and profiles are combined to calculate premiums. Pooling risks together allows the higher costs of the less healthy to be offset by the relatively lower costs of the healthy. COVID -19 has changed the very nature of what we once understood to be normal which calls for the way we do insurance to change.

By partnering with and participating in the Insurance Zone risk pool, it could result in a significant cost saving which in turn translates into either a higher allocation to each members retirement account or a saving to the employer, if the benefits are funded by the employer.
