Becoming a member of a Risk Rentention Group requires careful consideration. As an insurance company, ETRRG must also complete a thorough review of potential members. When a company considers entry into ETRRG, an in depth evaluation on several important criteria must occur. A potential member should understand that ETRRG will complete:
1. Company operations review
2. A financial review/analysis
3. A comprehensive loss control review
4. An underwriting review
5. A member review/approval
Potential members need to demonstrate that they meet specific underwriting guidelines. They must also accept company by-laws and agreements while adhering to loss control and hiring guidelines. Those companies who can successfully meet these items, and complete the evaluation process, will become a member of a true captive insurance carrier. A carrier who provides 100% of it's underwriting profit in the form of a dividend to its policyholders is one you want to consider.
