January to Bring Change to State Fund

We’re making it easier for you to do business with us! State Fund is committed to ongoing improvements and we’re excited to share the following updates with you, all starting January 1, 2020.

January 1, 2020 Rate Filing

State Fund’s rate filing achieves an overall decrease of 10 percent in collectible premium for policies with new and renewal dates of January 1, 2020 and later.

Additional Rate Reductions for Specific Class Codes

To recognize improvements in specific industries’ claims costs and to better serve even more California businesses, State Fund’s January 1, 2020 rate filing includes further decreased rates for 65 select class codes. The decrease for these select class codes averages a 38.5 percent reduction to the base rate.

Change in Deposit Requirements

Great news! State Fund is eliminating deposit requirements for most new and renewal business effective January 1, 2020. This reduces the amount of upfront money required to bind or maintain a policy. It’s now easier for you to place business with us and for your clients to obtain workers’ compensation coverage.
