What is the Workers’ Compensation Administration Fund?
The workers’ compensation administration fund was created to provide the funds necessary to administer Vermont’s Workers’ Compensation Program.
The fund consists of contributions from employers, based on the Workers’ Compensation Assessment Rate.
The statutory reference: 21 V.S.A. § 711. Workers' Compensation Administration Fund
Current Workers’ Compensation Assessment Rates:
Insurance Companies: Effective July 1, 2023, the assessment rate is 1.5%.
Self-Insured: 1% of workers’ compensation losses during the preceding calendar year.
**These assessment rates will remain in effect until further notice.
