MUTUALIA is a Mutual Insurance Company covering Accidents and Illness at Work that operates hand-in-hand with the Social Security system. It is a not-for-profit business association with joint liability.
It collaborates with the Social Security system in the management of healthcare services, cash benefits, and the promotion of Health & Safety, focusing on companies, their employees, and sundry other clients.

It was created in 2006 through the merger of Mutua Vizcaya Industrial, Pakea, and La Previsora, all mutual insurance agencies with a track record dating back over a hundred years, thereby becoming the main insurance company of this kind in the Basque Country.

Mutualia is one of Spain’s leading mutual insurance companies covering accidents and illness at work, with its main operating principles being personalised care, immediacy, friendly treatment and the quality of its health centres, as well as seeking the engagement of all its professionals with its member companies and partner firms according to parameters of excellence.

In the wake of Spain’s 2007 Organic Law on effective equal opportunities between women and men, the company set up an Equality Committee, which continues to meet to this day, whose original remit was to ensure that by 2008 Mutualia would already have its first Equal Opportunities Plan (it has now rolled out its third), closely linked to measures for reconciliation and time management.

It employs a workforce of 600 people: 420 women (70%) and 180 men (30%).
