California Workers Comp Rates

California workers' compensation rates expected to increase in 2018.

California State Fund just announced a 9.5% rate reduction due to a decrease in claims costs. The Dept of Insurance has approved the rate filing and new rates will be effective September 1, 2016. Private insurance companies are likely to follow suit in order to remain competitive against State Fund rates. Although the overall reduction is 9.5%, individual employer may still see rate increases or decreases depending on class codes and experience factors.

California is the most expensive state in for workers compensation coverage. A 2014 study indicated that the average rates in CA were almost 188% higher than the study medium. California was ranked 13th in 2008, but rates have steadily increased since 2008.

Workers compensation rates can vary significantly between insurance companies in California. Several carriers exited the state due to losses and market volatility, while other carriers have entered the CA market. California employers may benefit by shopping workman's comp with agencies like Workers Compensation in order to find the best rates.
