Workers' Compensation Committee

The Workers' Compensation Committee proactively provides actuarial support and perspective on topics that involve workers' compensation insurance. Its efforts include seeking out new audiences and identifying current trends and topics of interest so that the committee can coordinate and respond to actuarial issues as they arise at the state and federal levels. This committee actively interfaces with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions, and National Conference of Insurance Legislators, among other organizations.
