With prospective billing, the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) requires that all employers true-up their payroll annually.  To true-up, private employers are required to report their actual payroll for the July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023 policy year and reconcile any differences in premium by August 15, 2023. If you have not yet completed your true-up, please do so immediately.  You can report and pay any additional premium due by clicking here or by calling BWC at (800) 644-6292.

Failure to report and pay timely can result in severe penalties.  Employers that fail to complete the true-up process will:

  1. Lose any rebates due from 2022 program participation.
  2. Be removed from all 2023 discount and rebate programs. The employer will be removed from the program for the entire year, be re-rated removing the discount, and the remainder of the 2023 installments will be adjusted to account for the rate increase.
  3. May become ineligible to participate in any 2024 discount and rebate programs if the true-up process is not completed by the program filing deadline.

If you have any questions regarding reporting payroll or the true-up process, please contact your Sedgwick rate analyst at (800) 825-6755.
