PACIF members: your PACIF 2016 Invoice and supporting documents should have arrived by mail during Thanksgiving week. Please read the cover letter carefully, as it has a lot of important information. For example, note that payment for all line items on the invoice must be combined in a single municipal check: that is, if “2016 Contribution for VFD Workers’ Comp Assigned Risk Program” is listed, it must not be paid separately. If you have any questions, please call VLCT and speak with a member of the PACIF Underwriting team.

2016 Workshops & Training
This YouTube video gives a quick overview of one way we are helping PACIF members' employees get serious about wellness. Studies show that healthy workers are injured less often and recover more quickly than unhealthy ones. In each One-to-One Wellness Consultation, Heidi Joyce spends 30 minutes with a single employee to get a handle on his or her wellness status and develop customized strategies for improving. Members just need to schedule several consultations for a single day so Heidi can share her know-how and enthusiasm.
