Municipal Benefits Services

The Municipal Employers Insurance Trust (“MEIT”), now operating as Municipal Benefits Services (“MBS”), was established in 1968 to provide comprehensive employee benefits programs and related administrative services to municipalities, authorities, and councils of government in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

MBS’ mission is to provide valuable and cost-effective employee benefit programs and related services to local governments through co-operative purchasing with a strong focus on effective risk management strategies to deliver long-term cost containment and superior service for our members.

The foundation of MBS is strong knowledge of government and its specialized needs. To ensure we are keenly focused on the needs of our members, MBS is governed by nine board members with extensive experience in managing municipalities with four additional non-voting members serving in an advisory role.

The Board has engaged Mockenhaupt Benefits Group to manage and administer the MBS Benefits Program.
