Assessment Rates

The net premiums written by the workers’ compensation carriers in Florida and the net premium applicable to the self-insurers in Florida are the basis for computing the amount to be assessed which is expressed as a percentage of net direct written premiums.  Neither carriers nor self-insurers may deduct the cost or reinsurance. However, you may deduct dividends and refunds paid in a given quarter. These premiums are then applied to the current applicable SDTF assessment rate to determine the carrier’s quarterly assessment.
