About The Federation

Who We Are

The Insurance Federation of Pennsylvania is a non-profit trade association that enjoys a proud history of accomplishment representing companies from all segments of the industry. Our members are large and small, domestic and foreign, and represent over half of the premium volume written in Pennsylvania.

The Insurance Federation’s advocacy on behalf of its members focuses on legislative and regulatory matters. The Federation also plays an active role in litigation and other forums where the industry’s interests are implicated.

With a well-earned reputation for integrity in the pursuit of member company interests, we provide a unified industry voice in a constantly changing political environment.


We work with the Pennsylvania General Assembly to develop and advance a pro-insurance policy agenda.


Together with our regulators, we foster a robust and competitive insurance marketplace to better serve policyholders.


In judicial forums, we engage in litigation impacting our members and their business interests.
