The Leader in Idaho Workers’ Comp

Idaho has been our home for over 100 years, and we’ve watched our state grow and evolve into one of the best places to live and work in the country. We love Idaho, we love the unique business landscape here, and we love that we get to care for our friends and neighbors each day.  

We keep a pulse on our business economy, on insurance trends, and on constantly adapting our solutions to meet Idaho’s needs. It’s our goal to increase workplace safety, reduce accidents, and to always be here to care for the wellbeing of all injured workers across our Idaho.  

We love to see workers and businesses here grow, adapt, and we're proud to partner in their success. 

SIF is valuable to us because their employees are professional, knowledgeable, and easy to work with; plus, they help our clients improve the safety of their respective businesses.
