Along with upfront savings and improved coverage, LIRA members are eligible for a return of surplus (carrier profit) which is distributed back to the members of LIRA in good performing years.
The LIRA program discloses every cost down to the penny. This transparency provides the membership with the comfort to know that they are getting what they deserve for their money.
