Subsequent Injury Trust Funds

The Subsequent Injury Trust Fund was enacted by the Georgia General Assembly on July 1, 1977. Its purpose was to provide incentives to employers in order to hire or retain qualified workers with disabilities. Over the next thirty years it has evolved into a strong commitment of educating employers, insurers, and their agents on the financial benefits associated with building positive relationships with those who have a permanent impairment.

A board of five trustees, led by Chairman Mr. John Fervier, governs the Subsequent Injury Trust Fund. Mr. John Fervier was reappointed Chairman on the twentieth of August and will serve his term until July 1st, 2012.
