Contractors’ workers’ compensation is a state-regulated, no-fault insurance system that pays benefits to employees injured in the course and scope of employment.
Contractors’ workers’ compensation insurance protects employers from financial liability incurred by an employee’s work-related injury or illness. It helps injured employees recover so they can return to work as soon as possible.
Coverage varies by state, but most policies provide the same basic benefits for medical expenses resulting from a work-related injury, disease, or illness and compensate for lost wages if an employee qualifies.
Employee benefits are to be determined by the severity and type of the injury or illness sustained:
Medical Benefits – Pays for examinations, treatments, and rehabilitation.
Income Benefits – Pays for lost wages while an employee is recovering.
Death Benefits – Pays lost wages to the family of a deceased employee.
Burial Benefits – Pays a portion of funeral expenses.
Some contractors may need assistance obtaining a workers’ comp policy based on their operations. Most states have an “Assigned Risk or High-Risk Pool” that will underwrite businesses unable to purchase coverage in the private market.
Rates depend on the type of work performed, claims history, territory, and prior or continuous coverage.
There are three main factors used to calculate contractors’ workers’ comp premiums:
The basic formula for calculating contractors’ workers’ comp premiums is:
Employee Classification Rate X Employer Payroll (Per $100) X Experience Mod Rate = Workers’ Comp Premium
Most states mandate business owners with employees to carry contractors’ workers’ comp insurance. Violations for non-compliance vary by state and can result in severe penalties and fines.
We encourage employers to visit their local municipal or state authority to verify workers’ compensation rules and regulations before commencing operations.
Most carriers require an annual audit once the policy expires to compare the estimated payroll with the actual payroll and determine if there’s an additional premium owed or if the overpaid premiums are to return to the insured.
Our programs offer various payment options when purchasing your contractors’ workers’ compensation policy.
Full Payment Option – Pay the estimated premium with one payment.
Direct Bill Option – Pay the estimated monthly premium to the carrier directly.
Pay as You Go – Pay the premiums based on actual payroll figures, not estimates.
