Department of Industrial Relations December 2007
2007/2008 Self-Insured Assessment Rates

The Department of Industrial Relations Self-Insurance Plans (DSIP) has started to send out invoices for the
2007/2008 self-insured assessments. The invoices are dated December 12, 2007 with payment due no later
than January 11, 2008.
Assessments are 100% employer funded and are used to support the Department of Workers’
Compensation (DWC) budget, fund the Department of Insurance and the local District Attorney anti-fraud
efforts, pay for injured workers’ whose employers were uninsured and provide benefits for injured workers’
who qualify under the Subsequent Injury Fund. The total assessment amount required each year is
dependent upon budgets needed to run each of the four programs outlined and the available fund balance
for each program.
The 2007/2008 assessments represent an increase over last year’s due to a smaller carry over balance than
expected, a loan made to the Division of Occupational Safety & Health (OSHA), an increase in the DWC’s
operating expenses, as well as, a one time investment in the DWC’s Electronic Adjudication Management
