VT Workers Comp Information

Vermont is an NCCI state for Workers' Compensation purposes. This means it partners with the National Council on Compensation Insurance to determine rates on all business classification codes and to administer the assigned risk for the state.
There are currently only 25 insurance companies actively providing workers compensation quotes in Vermont. Most states have a couple hundred who quote within the state.

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.
Vermont is an NCCI State
Vermont 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. Vermont 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.
