   Local Government Insurance Trust
BGE, founded in 1816 as the nation’s first gas utility, is Maryland’s largest natural gas and electric utility. Headquartered in Baltimore, BGE delivers power to more than 1.25 million electric customers and more than 650,000 natural gas customers in central Maryland. The company’s approximately 3,200 employees are committed to the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas and electricity, as well as enhanced energy management, conservation, environmental stewardship and community assistance. BGE is a subsidiary of Exelon Corporation (NYSE: EXC), the nation’s leading competitive energy provider.

For 30 years, Maryland’s local governments have covered their primary and excess liability, auto, environmental, property and equipment breakdown insurance needs through the Local Government Insurance Trust (LGIT). Owned and managed by its members, LGIT was founded in 1987 by act of the Maryland General Assembly through the joint efforts of the Maryland Municipal League (MML) and the Maryland Association of Counties (MACo). LGIT’s purpose is to meet Maryland’s local governments risk management needs - not to make a profit by selling insurance. Because of LGIT, local governments know they now have insurance coverage available to them at stable rates and predictable costs - regardless of private insurance industry cycles. In addition to the publications produced by LGIT, they also provide a wide variety of Risk Management services including: Training, Grants, the LGIT Online Campus and the HR Compliance Portal.

On July 1, 2010, LGIT partnered with Benecon and CIGNA to provide local governments an alternative for their health insurance needs with LGIT HEALTH. This program has continued to grow. LGIT members are taking advantage of this new way to provide health coverage for their employees and help control the cost of health insurance.
