“Thank You”, TSA, TSA Comp Group, and Texas Mutual Insurance Company. As a member of TSA we have been able to take advantage of participating in the workers compensation insurance program offered by Texas Mutual Insurance. We have participated in the program for four years now and we have not only reduced our premiums but receiving the annual dividend checks has been a great bonus.
