Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy Workers' Compensation in Missouri?

Missouri provides a state fund for Workers' Compensation insurance, Missouri Employers Mutual Insurance, to guarantee the availability of required Workers' Compensation coverage. Most businesses should be able to source coverage in the open market through agents or brokers. Online insurance portals, such as CoverWallet, are often the most convenient way to insure your business for Workers' Compensation and other key coverages.

What if I am self-employed in Missouri? Do I need Workers' Compensation?

In most cases, Missouri employers are required to have Workers' Compensation coverage for employees if they have five or more employees. A sole proprietor is not considered to be an employee and is not required to have Workers' Compensation coverage. A sole proprietor or partner is also not counted as an employee when determining if a Missouri business is required to have coverage.

How Much Does Missouri Workers' Compensation Cost?

Missouri, along with the majority of states, uses rating data from the National Council on Compensation Insurance to help establish Workers' Compensation insurance rates based on industry risk. Other factors, such as your business's safety and claims history, as well as your payroll, are used to calculate the premiums for your Workers' Compensation coverage.
