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.

New Mexico Assigned Risk

New Mexico partners with the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI). NCCI gathers data, analyzes industry trends, and prepares objective insurance rate and loss cost recommendations. NCCI is the nation’s most experienced provider of workers compensation information, tools, and services. New Mexico uses NCCI to determine rates on workers' compensation coverage and to administer the assigned risk for the state. If your business for any reason cannot find coverage on the open market the assigned risk will offer coverage. Coverage in the assigned risk is normally higher than the open market.

How does workers comp help my business?

Your business benefits from workers' compensation coverage, by not being liable for injuries that occur as a part of normal business operations. This applies whether the injury was the fault of the business or was caused by negligent actions of the employee. You can move forward with your business operations knowing that if one of your employees is injured because of something that happens as a normal part of your business operations, your business is not liable for the costs.

New Mexico State Fund

New Mexico has a competitive state fund partner, New Mexico Mutual Casual Company. Created in 1991 by New Mexico State Lawmakers and leaders in the insurance industry, New Mexico Mutual Casualty Company was formed to assure competitive workers’ compensation coverage in New Mexico for all New Mexico businesses. Businesses in New Mexico needed this at the time because many national carriers had left the workers’ compensation market in New Mexico. Today, New Mexico businesses today enjoy a competitive workers’ compensation market and rates that are less than 47% of what they were in 1991.
