How are Workers Compensation premiums calculated?
We’ll use the wage information given in your Declaration of Estimated Wages to calculate your premium.
Additional factors taken into consideration when calculating GIO Workers Compensation Insurance premiums include:
- industry type
- cost of previous workers compensation claims associated with the business
- claims history
- applicable government charges.
At the term expiry, your premium will be adjusted based on the information provided in your Declaration of Actual Wages Form. If your actual wages are lower than your estimated wages for the policy period, you may be entitled to be refunded for that portion of the premium. If your actual wages are higher than your estimated wages, you’ll need to pay the extra premium.
