Benefits of Membership

6 Good Reasons to Become an NJBIA Member

1. Access to Top-Rated NJ Auto Insurance

NJBIA members and their employees enjoy exclusive eligibility to apply for personal auto insurance coverage with New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Co. (NJM).

Why NJM?

  • Lower Premiums - In a recent comparison, NJM saved its personal auto insurance policyholders an average of more than 20% compared with other carriers.
  • History of Dividends - NJM has a long history of paying dividends to its policyholders as dividends, with more than $5.6 billion in dividends paid since 1918. The most recent personal-auto dividend, declared in late 2014, averaged $115 per policy.
