The Trust was formed January 1, 1983 when school districts in southwest Washington joined together by signing an Interlocal Governmental Agreement to pool their self-insured losses and jointly purchase insurance and administrative services. Twenty-nine school districts and the Educational Service District 112 have joined the Trust.

The Trust is an Enterprise Fund established for the purpose of providing group self-funding, group purchase of excess insurance, claims control and risk management for industrial injury accident liabilities of its members.

The Trust is fully funded by its member participants. Educational Service District 112 Insurance Programs staff perform claims handling services for the Trust.

The Southwest Washington Workers' Compensation Trust is governed by a Board of Directors, which is comprised of one designated representative from each participating member, with delegated authority to a five member Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is responsible for conducting the business affairs of the Trust.
