South Dakota Workers Comp Rates

South Dakota workers' compensation rates continue to increase in 2019.

Rates for workers' compensation in South Dakota are almost exactly the national average and they have remained stable for the past five years. This is good for employers purchasing workers' compensation coverage, but many business owners don't take full advantage of all the discounts, credits and programs available on workers comp coverage.

Not all insurance carriers are the same. It is recommended that employers shop their insurance carriers around with at least 3 or 4 carriers to ensure they are getting the best deals on their policy. We partner with more than 35 carriers actively quoting policies in South Dakota. This gives your business more options for better pricing. Because we partner with so many carriers we are confident we can get you the best rates in the industry.
