Mutual Benefit Association

Definition - What does Mutual Benefit Association mean?

Insuranceopedia explains Mutual Benefit Association

Membership in a mutual benefit association is a good option for people who want to receive some financial coverage for risks without having to pay expensive premiums to insurance companies. When a loss occurs, it is assessed by the association and a decision is made about whether or not to reimburse it.

Mutual benefit associations are often structured around social groups, companies, or agencies.
