Delaware Workers’ Comp Rates Decline December 1st

Employers in Delaware will experience another decrease in workers compensation rates effective Dec. 1.

Comp rates will decline an average of 7.3% for the residual market and about 10% for the voluntary market, according to a statement by Delaware Insurance Commissioner Trinidad Navarro on Monday.

“I am delighted to approve yet another decrease in workers’ compensation rates in Delaware and even happier to see a double-digit average decrease in the voluntary market,” he said in the statement.

For the second year in a row, all actuaries reviewing the comp rate filing agreed that another rate drop was warranted, he added.
