History of the Fund

The MILD Self-Insured Workers' Compensation Fund was formed June 1, 1981 as a way to control the long term workers' compensation costs of members of the Michigan Institute of Laundering and Drycleaning. The Fund grew quickly and by 1986 collected more than $1 million in premium annually. In 2004 the Fund expanded to include eligible members of the Midwest Carwash Association

In 2010 the MILD Fund Board of Trustees was pleased to announce the change of the Fund’s name to the Michigan Cleaning Fund, which reflects the variety of cleaning industries eligible to participate.  Eligible classes of business include: dry cleaning, industrial laundry and uniform, coin-operated laundry, car wash, carpet cleaning, and janitorial cleaning.

As the Michigan Cleaning Fund approaches its 35 year anniversary, it remains the best option for the industry to control workers’ compensation costs.  The Fund’s Board of Trustees will continue to find ways to better serve its members in the years ahead.
