Did you know?

Changes to your business can affect your risk exposures and insurance needs.

It’s a good idea to review your insurance needs annually, so please take a few moments to review the important Workers’ Compensation insurance considerations to the right:

  • Has there been any increase/decrease in your company’s payroll?
    This information is necessary because the price you pay for workers’ comp is based, in part, on annual gross payroll.
  • In the past 12 months, has your employee headcount increased or decreased?
  • Do you have employees who work from home on a regular basis?
  • Do you use subcontractors, volunteers or interns?
  • Do you or your employees travel to other states or foreign countries?

If any of the above apply, you should carefully consider your coverage levels and features when purchasing or renewing your Workers’ Compensation coverage.
