Why did I receive a letter from the California Society of Professional Engineers regarding my State Compensation Insurance Fund Policy?
Your firm received a letter from the California Society of Professional Engineers (CSPE) because you have been placed in a State Fund discounted group program (Group 92). Membership in CSPE is required to remain in Group 92 to maintain your current discounted State Fund rates. Unfortunately, many insurance brokers are unaware of the CSPE membership requirement for Group 92. As a result, you received a CSPE join request when CSPE audited the Group 92 membership.
How can I be placed in CSPE Group 92 program with State Fund?
After joining CSPE as either an engineer member, or a Supporting Organization, contact your broker and ask to be placed in CSPE Group 92 and find out if you're eligible for the engineering group discount. You may contact State Fund directly at 800-423-0303.
How was I placed in the CSPE Group 92 program with State Fund?
Your agent or broker placed you in Group 92 because you are eligible for the engineering group discount (i.e., architecture and design firms, etc.). You must belong to CSPE to maintain your discount and remain in the Group 92 program. If you elect not to join CSPE through one of the membership options listed below, you will be removed from Group 92 and lose your State Fund discounted rates.
What are my membership options? What does it cost to join?
Currently, it costs $220 annually for a CSPE membership if your company has an engineer that is a principal in the firm. If this option applies to your company, please join online. This link will take you to the membership application with our parent organization, the National Society of Professional Engineers. If your company does not have an engineer who is a principal in the firm, you must join as a CSPE Supporting Organization ($250 annual dues), or your company will be removed from Group 92, or be ineligible to participate. Membership as a Supporting Organization entitles you to all California membership benefits, as well as a company listing in our CSPE Online electronic newsletter, and on our website . To join as a Supporting Organization, print out the application form here . Submit your application form and a check payable to the California Society of Professional Engineers to the address shown on the form.
