Social Work Resource (SWR) exists to manage insurance programs with social workers’ best interests in mind. We work hard to be a socially responsible organization dedicated to improving the lives of social workers.

As social workers become increasingly subject to malpractice lawsuits, defense against such claims (even when the claims are groundless or fraudulent) can be extremely expensive. Consequently, malpractice insurance is no longer simply an option for social workers; it’s a necessity.

With solid experience and an excellent track record in participating in the management of the insurance programs, SWR offers one of the largest, strongest, most stable programs in the world written expressly for social workers.

Our staff has done the research and legwork needed to select a high-quality, affordable program tailored to the broad scope of professional social work practice. We manage the program to ensure that you receive excellent, caring customer service. We also provide you with risk management education and tools to help reduce risk. And importantly, we will advocate on your behalf if you are unfairly denied coverage or renewal.

Unlike many insurance companies that focus on creating profits for corporate shareholders, we invest in initiatives that benefit social workers and advance the profession.

We offer professional liability insurance for individuals – both professionals and students, schools, partnerships, corporations, and agencies.



SWR offices are located in Frederick, Maryland.
