NYSIF (The New York State Insurance Fund) was established in 1914 as part of the original enactment of the New York State Workers' Compensation Law. NYSIF's mission is to guarantee the availability of workers' compensation insurance at the lowest possible cost to all New York employers and to foster healthy outcomes with timely, appropriate indemnity and medical payments to injured workers, while maintaining a solvent fund. For more than a century, NYSIF has fulfilled the dual roles for which it was created: to compete with other carriers to ensure a fair marketplace and to be a guaranteed source of coverage for employers who cannot secure coverage elsewhere.

NYSIF is the largest workers' compensation carrier in New York State and among the 10 largest in the nation, insuring more than 145,000 policyholders with over $1.4 billion in annual premium and $20 billion in assets. A self-supporting insurance carrier, NYSIF operates without taxpayer funding.

In addition to workers' compensation insurance, NYSIF provides disability benefits coverage for off-the-job injuries to more than 65,000 New York employers. In 2018, NYSIF added Paid Family Leave as a component of its disability benefits solution providing New Yorkers with job-protected paid time away from work to care for their families.
