What is workers’ compensation?

A workers' compensation insurance policy provides benefits to your employees for work-related injuries and illnesses. It may also pay for medical treatment, temporary and permanent disability and death benefits. Requirements for workers’ comp vary by state.

Why your business needs workers’ compensation insurance

Nearly every state requires businesses to carry workers’ compensation insurance. But even if your state does not have such a requirement, carrying workers comp is still a smart idea that could protect your business if your employee suffers a work-related injury or illness. Workers compensation insurance is also a great way to look out for your employees and their families
