Coverage Information

The term "coverage information" as used throughout this website means the name of an employer, that employer's address and the name of the insurance company that wrote the employer's California workers' compensation insurance policy on a specific date within the last 5 years.

The Source of Workers' Compensation Insurance Coverage Data

The Insurance Commissioner's regulations contained in the California Workers' Compensation Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan – 1995 (Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan) require insurers to submit to the Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California (WCIRB) all policy documents (policies, endorsements, cancellations and reinstatements) that pertain to California workers' compensation insurance. The information available via this website is extracted from the data reported to the WCIRB. The Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan requires insurers to submit policy information to the WCIRB no later than sixty (60) days from the inception date of the policy. The WCIRB makes the name of the insurer available on this website within thirty (30) days of receiving the policy information from the insurer.

Coverage information shown on this website is not proof of, evidence or verification of workers' compensation insurance. The coverage information shown on this website may not reflect changes (cancellations or reinstatements) that have not yet been reported to the WCIRB or that have been reported within the last thirty (30) days. Information obtained from this website should be verified with the employer and/or the insurer.

An insurer, employer, injured worker, licensed health care provider or attorney involved in a pending workers' compensation claim who is unable to locate coverage information using this website may contact the WCIRB directly to obtain more detailed information. From the WCIRB homepage (www.wcirb.com), click Products and Services and then click Coverage Research.

The WCIRB does not maintain any information concerning self-insured employers. Self-insured employers are overseen by the California Department of Industrial Relations Office of Self Insurance Plans.
