Pay-as-you go Workers Compensation Insurance now available with Eddy Payroll
This kind of policy, which is automated and linked to your actual payroll, can help improve your cash flow and simplify your workers' comp coverage. We’re excited to offer workers comp insurance because payroll and workers comp are deeply intertwined: most states require workers comp insurance as soon as an employer hires their first employee, and insurance premiums are calculated at least in part using payroll amounts.

What is worker’s comp insurance?

Workers’ compensation (“workers comp”) insurance is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment. Payroll and workers comp are deeply intertwined: most states require workers comp insurance as soon as an employer hires their first employee, and insurance premiums are calculated at least in part using payroll amounts. Workers comp insurance is typically required by law in most states as soon as an employer hires their first employee. The regulatory-required coverage provided by a workers comp policy varies depending on the state, but typically includes benefits for medical expenses, disability payments, and rehabilitation costs.

How are workers comp premiums calculated?

Workers comp premiums are calculated using a number of inputs, but one of the main ones is payroll expense. There are two main types of plans:
  1. pay-as-you-go workers comp insurance allows businesses to make premium payments in real-time based on their actual payroll amounts.
  2. Yearly audit workers comp insurance requires businesses to estimate their payroll amounts at the beginning of the policy term and make a lump-sum payment for their workers comp insurance premiums, adjusting at the end of the year as necessary. A Yearly Audit plan can often be converted to a pay-as-you-go plan in the middle of the policy term length

Broker of Record (BOR) changes

If you already have pay-as-you-go workers comp insurance you can do a Broker of Record transfer for your existing insurance. This BOR transfer will allow you to keep their existing policy in place while moving to Eddy’s payroll platform.
