The Colorado Division of Worker's Compensation would like to welcome you to the Worker's Compensation Surcharge Web Portal. This web application is designed to facilitate calculation of surcharge by insurers and self-insured employers alike.
In Colorado, employers with one or more full or part-time employees are required to provide worker's compensation coverage for their employees, with few exceptions. Employees may obtain insurance through a number or methods including commercial insurance and self-insurance to those employers meeting strict financial and loss control standards or self-funding with groups or pools.
Insurers and self-insured employers pay a surcharge based on a percentage of premium or premium equivalents to the Colorado Division of Worker's Compensation to offset the cost of administration of the Colorado worker's compensation system and to fund the Major Medical and Subsequent Injury Funds. Surcharge is collected semiannually.
