Our Self-Insurance Pathway

    Lockton has in excess of 25 years experience in assisting large corporations determine whether self-insurance or Comcare is the suitable workers compensation insurance option.

    Why Self-Insurance  Workers’ compensation remains one of the largest insurance costs for employers and self-insurance can provide significant cost savings. Employers who implement a best practice framework for safety, injury and claims management can see improved cash flow benefits.

    The Roadmap to Self-Insurance  Lockton propose a 4-step process for organisations to become and maintain self-insurance. Each step requires complete buy in from a company to ensure a seamless transition out of your relevant workers’ compensation scheme.

    The Purpose of Self-Insurance  Self-insurance allows an employer to carry their own financial risk and not be burdened by poor performing clients within their industry across state-based schemes. Clients are responsible for the management of their own claims and the payment of their claim liabilities.
