“While the average member gets more than double their dues investment in return, the greater cause is unity and support of our industry and the right to earn a living.”

Member Rebate Program: This is a program brought to you by our state association, Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA). The average rebate our members received for reporting products that they use on a regular basis was $439.

Access to Workers Comp Plan Customized for Builders:
The Pennsylvania Builders Association’s worker’s compensation program has been growing at an exceptional rate due to very competitive rates and pricing stability over time. In fact, last year the program exceeded a total sales volume of $9 million, reflecting tremendous popularity with our members. That marked a 35 percent growth in just one year!
Not only does the program provide extremely competitive rates currently, but it will become even more competitive going forward. For instance, there will no longer be a common effective date, reducing hassles for PBA members. The insurance provider, Eastern Alliance, is now an A- rated carrier. Combine this with the superior claims handling and group purchasing power and you have a program worth taking a look at!
