A USL&H partner that understands the unique needs of waterfront employers.

After 20+ years of working with waterfront employers like you, we know that you have unique workers' compensation needs. At AEU, longshore is all we do—and we do it a little differently than other USL&H providers.

Having grown from a foundation in the maritime industry, we understand the importance of partnering with the right USL&H provider. AEU provides services to members of ALMA including claims handling, loss control, underwriting, longshore consulting, and leadership training.

When choosing a USL&H provider, it's important to work with a partner who understands your business, focuses on optimal claims outcomes, and prioritizes your employees' health and safety. We will work closely with you and your insurance broker to develop a USL&H program that addresses all of those areas and paves the way for you to control your long-term success.

Here, members benefit.
