Getting an insurance quote can sometimes feel like being surveyed by the census bureau. But don’t worry, getting a workers’ comp quote isn’t so bad. We usually only need some basic information, which you’re likely to know off the top of your head, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.
What you’ll need to provide for a workers’ comp quote
Here’s the kind of information you’ll want to have handy when you request a quote for workers’ compensation coverage:
- A detailed description of your operation
- The date coverage is needed
- The location of the operation
- The total amount of payroll for each type of job
- Your loss experience (history of workers’ compensation claims)
- A federal employer identification number (EIN) or your Social Security number
See, that’s not so bad. Get a quote now.

What happens after I request my quote?
If you request a quote from us online, we’ll follow up with you by email or phone, whichever you prefer. This is just to make sure we have all the information we need to get your quote.
Next, we’ll submit your application to the underwriter for review. Once we have the quote back from the underwriter, we’ll send you an electronic document that includes the quote. You’ll be able to sign the document electronically if you would like to go ahead and bind coverage.
