Michigan Workers Comp Rates

Michigan workers' compensation rates continue to increase in 2019.

Michigan is a unique state because the state allows insurance companies to set their own rates for each workers compensation class code. Most other states set the rates and allow adjustments via underwriting credits and debits. Michigan has allowed this open competition system since 1983 and it has proven to work well.

Workers Compensation rates in Michigan are, on average, about 9% below the median rates for the United States. This means that employers in Michigan are paying less premium for the same class codes as employers in 35 other states.

The downside of Michigan's competitive rating system is that rates can vary significantly between insurance companies. Employers are advised to shop multiple carriers to help ensure they are getting a good deal on their policy.
