The American Association of State Compensation Insurance Funds (AASCIF), is an association of workers’ compensation insurance companies from 26 different states, in an addition to 8 workers’ compensation boards in Canada. In the US, these companies, loosely referred to as state funds, each specialize in writing workers’ compensation insurance in a single state. Some of these companies operate as private insurance companies, whereas others act as agencies of their respective state governments. In Canada, all workers’ compensation insurance is provided through workers’ compensation boards, which have complete jurisdictional and administrative powers related to workers’ compensation in their respective provinces.
