The New York State Workers Compensation Board announced this week that the NYS assessment rate for 2023, will be 9.8% of standard premium. What does this mean to the average business? Businesses whose workers' compensation insurance renews on or after 1/1/2023, will see a decrease in the NYS assessment rate from 10.2% to 9.8%. Workers' Compensation insurance costs continue to defy inflationary pressures, with 6 straight years of rate decreases.
