It Offers Pay-as-you-go Premiums
Cerity is an online insurance provider that partners with payroll companies and offers pay-as-you-go workers compensation premiums. The company’s platform makes it easy to get a quote and bind coverage, and customers are typically able to secure a policy for 30% less than a broker’s premium. Workers compensation policies provide workers with medical and wage benefits in the event of a work-related injury or illness. In exchange for the benefits, workers compensation policies require that employers give up their right to sue.
Pay-as-you-go workers compensation premiums are a growing trend in the business world. The benefits include eliminating the need for large down payments and outdated payment methods. In addition, premium payments are more accurate since real-time payroll is used to calculate them. However, businesses should be aware that this method of paying premiums can be affected by under-reporting payroll.
