Dave Jones Advises California Workers’ Compensation Insurers To Reduce Rates By 16.5 Percent
By Lonce LaMon and the California Department of Insurance - May 23, 2017

The California Insurance Commissioner, Dave Jones, adopted and issued a revised advisory pure premium rate, lowering the benchmark to $2.02 per $100 of payroll for workers’ compensation insurance, effective July 1, 2017.  This is 16.5 percent less than the average pure premium rate of $2.42 California insurers filed as of January 1, 2017.

Dave Jones adopted the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau’s (WCIRB’s) recommendation to lower the advisory pure premium rate mid-year.  Mid-year pure premium rate adjustments are not the norm.  New data reflecting a significant change in underlying workers’ compensation costs is required before the commissioner will issue a mid-year adjustment.
