How Is Monthly Premium Calculated?
Premium is calculated by dividing the total insured base annual earnings by 1,200 and multiplying by the appropriate age-banded rate.
A rate increase that is due to a change in age or in salary should be effective the first day of the second month following the employee's birthday or salary change.
Do not include annual earnings for any individual in excess of $218,182 per year in the premium calculation.
