Enter the total amount paid in worker’s comp premiums ($) and the total payroll ($) into the worker’s compensation rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the worker’s compensation rate.

## Worker’s Compensation Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the worker’s compensation rate.

WCR = WC / PR *100

- Where WCR is the worker’s compensation rate ($/100 dollars of payroll)
- WC is the total amount paid in worker’s comp premiums ($)
- PR is the total payroll ($)

To calculate the worker’s compensation rate, divide the total amount paid in worker’s compensation premiums by the total payroll, then multiply by 100.

## How to Calculate worker’s compensation rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate workers’ compensation rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the total amount paid in workers comp premiums ($).
- The total amount paid in workers comp premiums ($) is given as: 1,750.

- Next, determine the total payroll ($).
- The total payroll ($) is provided as: 100,000.

- Finally, calculate the workers compensation rate using the equation above:

WCR = WC / PR *100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

WCR = 1,750 / 100,000 *100 = $1.75 ($/100 dollars of payroll)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total amount paid in workers comp premiums ($) = 3,000

total payroll ($) = 50,000

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..
