Kentucky Employers’ Mutual Insurance (KEMI) Lowers Rates for Fourth Straight Year
Employers in Kentucky received good news recently, as the state’s largest workers’ compensation insurance provider reports it will lower its rates for companies statewide for the fourth consecutive year.
The rate reduction from KEMI will lead to an overall average drop of 6%. Businesses eligible for KEMI’s preferred tier could see rates fall by as much as 30%, saving policyholders more than $9 million for the coming year according to the insurer. Rates will change on October 1, 2009 and apply to both new and renewal policies.
KEMI (www.kemi.com) is also lowering its minimum premium requirements from $700 to $500, saving KEMI’s small business accounts an additional $200 for their premiums. (workersxzcompxzkit)
