AmTrust Announces New Audit Noncompliance Charge

To comply with state bureaus and the National Council on Compensation (NCCI), AmTrust introduced a new audit noncompliance charge for workers’ compensation premiums. If a policyholder does not complete the request for a premium audit, the ANC will be applied to the policyholder’s initial estimated annual premium based on the specific rate for their state. For more information about the ANC, please download our PDF.

What is a Premium Audit?

Premium audits are vitally important – not only do they determine the final premium for an insurance policy, but also the data collected is later submitted to rating organizations, such as NCCI and independent bureaus, to be used in developing experience modifiers and loss costs.
Workers’ Compensation premiums are estimated prior to the start of a policy and are based on expected business operation and payroll information. To ensure these figures are accurate and classifications remain appropriate, all Workers’ Compensation policies are subject to an audit to determine the actual premium. The audit takes estimated payroll and converts the policy premiums, so they are based on actual payroll. Audits are required by Workers' Compensation law and the obligation is noted in every policy AmTrust writes.

Mail Audits

A mail audit is completed by the insured using forms that are mailed to them. To complete the audit endorsement, insureds must fill out the forms completely and return it to us along with payroll-supporting documents. If your policy is assigned for a mail audit, you can expect to receive an audit form shortly after your policy expires or is canceled.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 877.528.7878 and we will be glad to help you through the process.

Physical Audits

Audits are sent to a third-party firm to review the insured’s payroll information for the policy period, as well as their operations to verify their premium accurately reflects their coverage. The auditor will return their summary to us to complete the audit endorsement. If your policy is assigned for a physical on-site audit, you can expect to be contacted by our audit representative after your policy expires or canceled.
