Effective with renewal policies October 1, 2014

The State of New York disallowed a 16% rate increase request, and has held the base rates at 0% increase effective with policies renewing on and after October 1, 2014.   The loss cost rate for Code 5190- Electrical Wiring remains unchanged at 6.04. The NYS Assessment charge was reduced from 18.8% to 13.8% of premium

The loss cost rate, multiplied by a carrier loss cost multiplier yields the total rate charged by the carrier.  Each carrier's final rates will vary based upon their approved multiplier.

For those who qualify for Payroll Limitation, the weekly payroll "cap" of $1,204.81 will be revised to $1,212.98 effective with renewals October 1, 2014 and after.

Benefits for injured workers are indexed to 2/3 of the average statewide weekly wage. Effective July 1, 2014, the weekly maximum benefit for injured workers is $809.05, up from $803.21.  For many years the weekly maximum was held constant at $400.
