Organized in December 1983, SCMIT is a cooperative local government program providing self-funded workers' compensation protection for municipal employees.
The Municipal Association administers this program in conformance with standard industry practices. The South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission regulates this program.
To participate in SCMIT, an eligible entity may request membership upon adoption of a resolution of the entity's governing body. The SCMIT board of trustees' must approve any prospective members as well as the SC Workers' Compensation Commission. The board establishes annual rates, approves the annual budget and approves return of surplus, if any. Administrative services are performed by the Municipal Association of SC.
