New York State Insurance Fund

Welcome to the New York State Insurance Fund

The New York State Insurance Fund (NYSIF) was established in 1914 as part of the original enactment of the New York State Workers' Compensation Law. NYSIF's mission is to guarantee the availability of workers' compensation insurance at the lowest possible cost to New York employers and to provide timely, appropriate indemnity and medical payments to injured workers, while maintaining a solvent fund. Since inception, NYSIF has fulfilled the dual roles for which it was created: to compete with other carriers to ensure a fair market place and to be a guaranteed source of coverage for employers who cannot secure coverage elsewhere.

More About NYSIF


New Notification Center

August 1, 2019

NYSIF is pleased to announce its new Notification Center, which will make it easier for representatives to manage email notifications for their workers' comp clients’ policy documents and audits. We've also added a new option to broker accounts, allowing reps to enroll to receive a notification when premium bills are issued to clients. Workers' compensation policyholders can also benefit from this new enhancement to help manage email notifications for their policy documents. 

We encourage brokers and policyholders to log in or create an online account to take advantage of these new features.
