Your claims costs are an indicator of your business’s performance in the workers compensation system. The more claims costs you have, the higher your WCB premiums and rates will be.

To set your rate each year, we look at claims costs over three calendar years.

When you have active claims with the WCB, you will receive a Claim Transaction Statement (CTS) on a monthly basis to keep you informed on the costs related to the claims. Your CTS also shows which claims costs will be used to set your rate in the future.

If you have questions about the claims and costs listed on your CTS, contact the Claims Service Centre.
