Overview of TAC Pools​

The TAC Risk Management Pool (TAC RMP), TAC Health and Employee Benefits Pool (TAC HEBP) and Unemployment Compensation Group Account Fund are formed through interlocal cooperation agreements — counties agreeing to collectively self-fund their risk and benefit costs rather than purchase insurance from an unstable commercial market. Over the history of the pools, this approach has saved counties millions of dollars. TAC operates the pools on behalf of the counties, and a board of county officials from member counties governs each pool.
For more than 40 years, TAC RMP has provided counties with a stable, sustainable resource of protection against a variety of risks and liabilities. The Pool provides counties with the coverage listed below. Learn more. Contact us.

TAC Health and Employee Benefits Pool (TAC HEBP)

TAC HEBP is one of the oldest, largest and most successful public-sector benefit pools in the nation and provides high quality benefits to county employees including employee group health and dental coverage, prescription benefitsgroup term life and accident coverage, and long-term and short-term disability to county employees, officials and their dependents. Retiree health benefits are also available through the Pool. Learn more. Contact us.
The Fund reimburses the Texas Workforce Commission for unemployment claims paid to former employees of member counties. Participating counties have opted to be a “reimbursing employer” rather than pay the state unemployment payroll tax, which has generated substantial savings for them. Learn more. Contact us.
