Oakland, CA – The Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California (WCIRB) has released its 2021 Experience Modification Estimator for insurers, agents and brokers to help policyholders understand how payroll and claims experience will affect the computation of their 2021 experience modification (X-Mod).

By entering policyholder-specific payroll, classification and claims information into the Estimator, users can obtain an estimated X-Mod using proposed 2021 California Workers’ Compensation Experience Rating Plan—1995 values (including expected loss rates, D-Ratios and primary thresholds that vary by employer size).

The Estimator’s spreadsheet format makes it easy for users to view and simply copy and paste data into the application and then view, print or save detailed estimated 2021 X-Mod information based on that data.

The 2021 Estimator will be updated with the final approved experience rating values once the Insurance Commissioner issues a Decision on the WCIRB’s January 1, 2021 Regulatory Filing, and it will be available in the Learning Center of wcirb.com.

The Estimator is for informational purposes only, and results are approximations based on the information entered. The Estimator does not produce WCIRB-published X-Mods. For more information and helpful tips on how to use the Estimator, go to the WCIRB Experience Modification Estimators page.
