Notes Regarding Your Search

Federal Employment Identification Numbers (FEIN)

The WCIRB does not have Federal Employment Identification Numbers (FEIN) for all employers. Searches based solely on FEIN numbers may provide no results. If you do not receive your desired result, try your search again using the employer's company name.

Employer Name and Address Searches

You may search by the employer's primary name. The WCIRB's records reflect the employer's name and up to 23 additional named insureds as shown in "Item 1" of the workers' compensation insurance policy. If you are searching for an insured name that is not the name shown in "Item 1" of the policy or one of the first 23 named additional insureds, your search will return no results. Similarly, if you are searching using an employer address that is not shown in "Item 1" of the policy, your search will return no results.

If you are searching for a policy issued to an individual or sole proprietor, you must search by Last Name, First Name, Middle Initial (if any) in order to access the coverage information.

If your search returns too many search results, add additional search criteria such as the employer's address to narrow the search results.

Timing of Data Reporting

Search results may not reflect coverage information changes that have occurred within the last ninety (90) days. For additional information, please see Coverage Info.

Data Limitations

Coverage information may not be available or complete for all employers due to limitations with the policy information, such as similar or duplicate employer names, multiple or alternate locations and addresses for employers, or more than one named insured employer on an insurance policy. For additional information, please see Coverage Info.

Disclaimers

About the caworkcompcoverage.com Website

This website has been developed by the Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California (WCIRB) pursuant to California Insurance Code Section 11752.75 and California Code of Regulations Title 10 Section 2593. The purpose of this website is to assist you in determining whether an employer is insured for workers' compensation. This website will provide the name of the insurer that wrote a California workers' compensation policy for a specific employer on a specific date within a 5 year period. No automated retrieval is permitted.

Limitations of Coverage Information Available

The failure of an employer to appear in response to a query does not mean that the employer does not have insurance or is operating in violation of California law. Some employers are legally self-insured; inquiries regarding self-insured employers should be directed to the California Office of Self Insurance Plans.

Coverage information may not be available or complete for all employers due to limitations with the policy information , such as similar or duplicate employer names, multiple or alternate locations and addresses for employers, or more than one named insured employer on an insurance policy.

This website only provides coverage information for 5 years prior to the date of the query.

Search results may not reflect recent changes in information. Insurers have up to sixty (60) days to submit policy information to the WCIRB. (See California Workers’ Compensation Uniform Statistical Reporting Plan – 1995, Part 2, Policy Reporting Requirements). Policy information reported by insurers is available on the https://www.caworkcompcoverage.com website within thirty (30) days of being received by the WCIRB. Therefore, your search results may not reflect coverage information changes that have occurred within the last ninety (90) days.

The WCIRB's coverage records contain the insured’s primary name and up to 23 additional named insureds shown in Item 1 of the insurance policy. If you are searching for an insured name that is not the primary name or one of the first 23 shown in Item 1, your search will return no results.

The WCIRB's Federal Employment Identification Number (FEIN) records are not complete. Searches based solely on FEIN number may provide no results.

Information Displayed is Not Proof of Coverage

The result of your query is not evidence or verification of workers' compensation insurance, which should be obtained from or verified by the insurer directly. The results of a query should be confirmed both with the employer and the insurer before it is used for any purpose.

Where to Find Insurer Contact Information

To look up contact information for California insurance companies, visit the California Department of Insurance website. Please note: insurer names are abbreviated in the WCIRB records and may appear differently on the CDI website (e.g. ABC Ins Co vs. ABC Insurance Company). If you cannot locate a company on the CDI website, try searching without abbreviations.
