Liability Insurance Designed Specifically for Social Workers

Our History

Our expertise in managing, overseeing and providing Liability coverage goes back to 1969.

  • Beginning in 1969, we managed the Professional Liability Insurance for social worker members of the National Association of Social Workers, under the structure of a Trust.
  • By 2007 NASW Assurance Services, Inc. started operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of NASW, managing the program and performance of the insurance carrier and third-party administrator.
  • In 2012 The Preferra Insurance Company (formerly NASW Risk Retention Group (RRG) took over the Liability Insurance operations for social worker members of the association, enhancing the Professional Liability policy coverage, and providing more flexibility in underwriting as a way to advocate for its policyholders.
  • By the second semester of 2017, the RRG brand Social Work Resource was created to provide helpful information and Liability coverage to the broader social worker community regardless of membership status.


    SWR offices are located in Frederick, Maryland.

    Social Work Resource is part of the Preferra Insurance Company Risk Retention Group product suite administered by NASW Assurance Company, Inc.. Coverage is provided by the Preferra Insurance Company Risk Retention Group.
