2022 U.S. Workers’ Compensation Market Outlook

Insights on the current and future state of the U.S. Workers’ Compensation insurance market.

The statutory Workers’ Compensation market is a popular place for U.S. insurance companies and managing general agents (MGAs). The reason: consistent profitability, despite steadily decreasing rates and premiums.

A sustained drop in claim frequency is part of what makes the unusual combination of profitability and lower premiums possible. While the COVID-19 pandemic did contribute to a reduction in claim activity in 2020, claim frequency had been on the decline for several years as insureds have placed a greater focus on promoting a safety culture.

On the surface, the Workers’ Comp market continues to move along the same smooth and profitable path that it has enjoyed for the past eight years — and longer in certain states. Yet there are subtle signs, such as rising accident year combined ratios, which signal that this cycle could be coming to an end. What is next for the Workers’ Comp market?
