About PBA

I was always with SWIF and the rates were through the roof. My first year in the PBA Workers’ Compensation program, I saved close to $7,000 a year in premium. The program has been great for me.

Since joining YBA in 1985 we have improved our loss history and even received money back in dividends through the workers' compensation program. I would recommend any homebuilder who places safety at the forefront of their operation consider becoming a member.

I am thrilled to share my experience with the Pennsylvania Builders Association Workers' Compensation Program. Thanks to their partnership with Eastern Alliance and parallel pay, managing my workers' compensation has become a breeze. The smaller, bi-weekly payment structure has made a significant difference, eliminating the burden of large, infrequent payments. Now, I no longer have to fret about year-end surprises due to overtime or data discrepancies. This program has provided me with peace of mind and the confidence to focus on my business, knowing that my workers' compensation needs are in capable hands. I highly recommend the Pennsylvania Builders Association Workers' Compensation Program to fellow businesses looking for a stress-free and efficient solution.

Switching to the PBA Workers' Compensation Program was a game-changer for us. In just the first year, we saved an impressive $3,500, which covered our $650 annual membership fee and left us with additional savings. The monthly payment option is a massive advantage, sparing us from year-end financial stress during slower periods. This program is a perfect fit for small companies like ours. The occasional surprise rebate is an extra perk that reinforces the loyalty we have for PBA. It's a win-win situation – we take care of them, and they take care of us. With such outstanding results, we have no intentions of going anywhere else. When something works this well, there's no need to fix it.
