The State Bar of South Dakota has two group insurance programs. They are a long-term disability pland and a group life insurance plan offered by Hagan Barron Intermediaries. You can reach them at 605-334-1030.
The State Bar no longer provides a group health insurance plan.
Professional liability insurance is a concern for many lawyers. Because of dissatisfaction with commerical insurers' rates and services, the State Bar joined with nine other small state Bars to form a professional liability insurance company called Attorneys Liability Protection Society (ALPS). You can reach them at 1-800-367-2577. As a reminder, you should review Rule 1.4 and 7.5 regarding malpractice insurance. If you do not have malpractice insurance, your letterhead must acknowledge the lack of insurane in all communications with your client and you must disclose at the initiation of the attorney client relationship.
