What is Workers' Compensation?

The basic purpose of the Workers’ Compensation is to provide wage replacement benefits and medical treatment for employees who have been injured or become ill due to a work-related injury or illness. It prevents the employer from bearing the costs of injuries that occur during normal business operations.

Connecticut is an NCCI state.

NCCI stands for the National Council on Compensation Insurance. Connecticut uses NCCI for the determination of rates on Workers' Compensation Insurance. It is also used to administer the assigned risk plans as well as the reinsurance pools.

How are rates on workers comp coverage in Connecticut?

Connecticut has the second most expensive rates in the country for Workers' Compensation Insurance. The rates are 55% higher than the national average.

NCCI Class Codes

Connecticut uses the National Council on Compensation and Insurance (NCCI) for pricing workers' compensation rates. NCCI classifies a risk or workplace exposure within the proper NCCI class code.

Incorrect risk classifications by insurance agents and underwriters often results in a premium that is higher or lower than it should be. As an employer, you have the right to appeal to NCCI for proper classification assignment.
