The Intergovernmental Personnel Benefit Cooperative (IPBC) is an intergovernmental agency created under Illinois statutes, which allows units of local government to band together for the purposes of insurance and is open to municipalities, counties, special districts and intergovernmental agencies. The IPBC was established in 1979 and as of July 1, 2022 has over 150 members spread across the state of Illinois.
The purpose of the IPBC is to provide economies of scale and risk pooling that will allow members more financial stability than offered by the commercial insurance market in a fully transparent environment. The members retain the right within the IPBC to create and change their plan design, which is often required due to the nature of bargained contracts. Members also operate as part of a larger Board of Directors to control the finances within the pool.2023 IPBC Benefit Guide
