Administrative Assessments

Funding for the worker's compensation program is generated by an annual administrative assessment on insurance carriers and self-insured employers.

Section 102.75, Wis. Stats., authorizes the department to assess and collect the administrative costs for the Wisconsin Worker's Compensation Act from worker's compensation insurance carriers and self-insured employers. Each assessment is determined by the indemnity amount the company paid on claims closed the previous calendar year.

Each company's assessment amount was determined by multiplying its previous calendar year "first closed" claims' total indemnity payments by the rate indicated. Each company's claim detail listing is available under "Assessment Reports."
