The Maryland Joint Insurance Association (JIA) can provide insurance coverage to property owners, individuals, or businesses throughout the State of Maryland who have been unable to obtain essential property insurance through the competitive property/casualty insurance marketplace. The JIA offers Homeowners, Dwelling and Commercial property insurance for qualified properties.
Every applicant is encouraged to seek coverage through the competitive insurance marketplace. You can apply for insurance with the JIA by contacting a licensed property/casualty insurance Producers, or applying with the JIA directly.
The Joint Insurance Association does not have a rating by any financial rating organization, such as A.M. Best Company, due to our being a F.A.I.R. Plan. The law requires that all insurers licensed to write property insurance in the State of Maryland become a member of the Association.
