Workers’ Comp

Workers’ compensation insurance is a state regulated insurance system that ensures medical bills and some lost wages are paid for employees injured on the job or who have work-related diseases or illnesses.
Employees covered by workers’ compensation receive benefits based on the type and severity of their injuries. Benefits include:

  • medical benefits for medically necessary treatment of work-related injuries and illnesses
  • income benefits for a specified period of time up to a certain dollar limit set by law
  • compensation for burial expenses for employees killed on the job
  • death benefits for dependents of employees killed on the job

If employers choose to provide workers’ compensation, they must do so in one of the following ways:

  • buy a workers’ compensation insurance policy from an insurance company licensed by TDI. Obtain a quote from Texas Specialty Underwriters Inc. today
  • be certified by TDI-DWC to self-insure workers’ compensation claims
  • join a self-insurance group that has received a certificate of approval from TDI
  • be a self-insured governmental entity
