Rockville Recognized for Excellence in Claims Processing

City was Among First to Report Using LGIT Member Portal

Rockville, Maryland, Nov. 7 — The Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT) has recognized Rockville for exemplary efforts to effectively process claims and control losses. LGIT is a member-owned nonprofit risk and insurance pool whose main purpose is to provide self-insurance programs for the 183 municipalities in the Maryland that participate, Rockville among them.

The city received the LGIT Claims Award on Oct. 27 at LGIT’s 29th Annual Meeting in Annapolis. The award specifically noted that Rockville was one of the first of LGIT’s members to regularly report claims through the LGIT member portal. LGIT also cited Rockville’s efforts to control losses, specifically noting the sewer preventative maintenance team, which meets monthly. The team reviews operations and maintenance updates, engineering reports, environmental inspections and risk management reports with the goal of reducing the frequency and severity of sewer backup claims.

Rockville’s Safety and Risk Division developed a series of online claims forms to provide prompt, accurate and convenient reporting of claims sustained by Rockville residents or businesses. Forms are compliant with the Local Government Tort Claims Act notice provisions.

The forms can be found at www.rockvillemd.gov/index.aspx?nid=1842.
