The American Association of State Compensation Insurance Funds, or AASCIF, is an association of workers' compensation insurance companies from 27 different states, plus 10 workers' compensation boards in Canada. In the US, these companies--loosely referred to as state funds--each specialize in writing workers' compensation insurance in a single state. Some operate as private insurance companies, whereas others act as agencies of their respective state governments. The 2009 AASCIF Annual Conference draws more than 300 state fund insurance executives.
