Officer Inclusion/Exclusion Information

Officer inclusion and exclusion rules vary by state. As an Officer of your company, you may have the option to elect whether workers’ compensation coverage will be available for you to pay for medical costs at the time of a work related injury.

It is the responsibility of the Owner/Operator and its approved broker to determine, prior to applying for coverage, the options available under a specific state’s regulations. Action taken either to include or exclude coverage under a state law does not eliminate the need for specific action in additional states where the Owner/Operator may have workers’ compensation exposures. If an Owner/Operator elects or rejects officer coverage as a change to the standard state’s guidelines, certain forms may be required to be filed with some states and/or the insurance provider. At the time of binding your coverage, assure your Officer elections are correct. Marsh is not responsible for incorrect information. Visit your state’s website for the most up-to-date information.
