How will the rate filing affect my premium?

We've had a lot of questions about this.  Let's imagine that you are an electrical contractor.  First the basics:


Current rate as of January 01, 2016          $5.25 per $100. of Payroll

Example of $100,000 in Annual Premium

(Payroll x Rate = Premium)  (there's more to the final calculation, but for the sake of simplicity, let's stick with this)

Curent Base Premium Calculation:   100,000 x 5.25% = $5,250



If the insurance commissioner passes the entire proposed rate increase of 19.6%,:

Proposed rate on October 01, 2016          ($5.25 x 1.19%) or  $6.25 per $100. of Payroll

Proposed Base Premium Calculation:   100,000 x 6.25% = $6,250  (an increase of $1,000. annually.
