About

Protecting workers for the future is our history

Committed to the journey

Pinnacol made great strides in 2018 toward transforming our business to provide exceptional customer experience and outstanding financial results.

How work gets done has changed over the last 10 years and will change exponentially faster over the next 20 years.

However, our promise to protect employers and care for workers remains the same. We look to the future with the strength and stability of over 100 years of experience. It’s why every day, nearly 57,000 Colorado companies open their doors knowing that we, as their neighbors, have their back.

We’ve built a strong reputation for personalized service and care. Our competitively-priced coverage includes complimentary safety resources, 24/7 online claims management, a carefully selected provider network and much more.

Our services

An insurance policy is only a promise. Anyone can sell a promise, but it's how we keep it that makes all the difference in the world.

Industry expertise – teams of industry experts to surround and support you with: safety, claims, medical management, underwriting and hands-on policy management.
Safety services – With the largest, most skilled Safety Services team in the state, your team’s safety and wellness is our top priority. We provide free, industry-leading safety resources, training and education to all of our customers.
Return to work – dedicated consultants to design tailored programs for individual claims to get injured employees back to work healthy, safe and as quickly as possible.
SelectNet - A preferred provider network with specialized expertise in treating workplace injuries throughout Colorado.
