Responsive to the unique needs of cities and counties
CIS' Workers' Compensation services are focused on "people first" by preventing claims through risk management services and helping injured workers return to work quickly.
CIS has partnered with SAIF to provide workers’ compensation coverage to CIS members starting July 1, 2021.
The agreement includes an overarching servicing group, of which CIS staff will provide safety and health and return-to-work (RTW) services. If approved by DCBS, SAIF would add a new discount (OGSERP) group within the servicing group for cities and counties that meet the underwriting eligibility criteria.
Cities and counties currently insured with SAIF or coming to SAIF from CIS would opt into the CIS Servicing Group. Members will receive the best of both worlds, being insured by SAIF and receiving safety and RTW services from CIS’ public entity experts.
By joining the CIS Servicing Group, members can get the best coverage and service at the best price.
Any member of LOC or AOC — including those currently with SAIF or CIS — can participate.
CIS will provide expert risk management, loss control, return-to-work services, and training that’s tailored to the needs of Oregon’s cities and counties.

All current CIS members will be offered SAIF coverage.
