Washington, D.C. (Dec. 7, 2021) — The Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) today announced that a dividend of $4.1 million will be shared by nearly 1,200 member banks based on their participation in the ICBA/Travelers insurance program in 2020. This is the 20th consecutive year that a dividend is being paid out to participating community banks.
“ICBA is pleased to provide this valuable member benefit, which offers community bankers a range of insurance products at competitive rates and the potential to earn dividends through their participation in the program,” ICBA Senior Executive Vice President of Community Bank Solutions Kevin Tweddle said. “Travelers is a well-respected and trusted partner of community banks and we appreciate this relationship that continues to pay dividends for our members, allowing them to focus more resources on serving customers.”
Travelers helps community banks manage and mitigate risks by offering a full suite of services that address exposures in areas such as property, general liability, auto, workers’ compensation, crime, cyber risks, fiduciary liability, employment practices liability, bankers’ professional liability, and directors and officers liability, among others.
“Our partnership with the ICBA has spanned more than 35 years and produced total dividend payouts of over $70 million,” said Laura Lundin, Vice President of Financial Institutions at Travelers. “Community banks play a vital role in our economy, and we’re pleased to help ICBA members across the country protect the businesses they’ve worked so hard to build.”
