About Us


The AVMA founded the Trust in 1962 as a means to ensure that veterinarians would have an advocate in the management of their professional liability claims. Since the 1960s, this has been a vital component of the PLIT-sponsored Program. Building on the success of the malpractice insurance program, the PLIT expanded its sponsored program offerings to include veterinary license defense, business owner's package policies, workers’ compensation, employment practices liability, automobile, and comprehensive personal insurance solutions for AVMA and student AVMA members. The security, stability, and strength over the past five decades explain why the PLIT-sponsored program is the first choice for so many veterinarians and veterinary students for business, malpractice, and personal insurance. Today, more than 70,000 veterinarians participate in the PLIT-sponsored program.

The other half of the AVMA Trust, AVMA LIFE, provides comprehensive disability and life insurance products to veterinarians.
