Unlike most national carriers, your local United Insurance agent has access to multiple carriers and the experience to help you find the best rates and the right amount of coverage for your type of work.

How much do I need?

Maine state law requires that most public and private employers carry some workers' compensation coverage, but the amount of coverage is really up to the individual business owner.

Different types of work have different amounts of risk associated with them – and higher risks often result in higher rates. For example, a welder working with heavy equipment and potentially toxic substances has a higher risk of being injured on the job compared with someone who works in an office environment.

For this reason, insurance rates do vary by industry classification and are established each year by MEMIC (Maine Employer’s Mutual Insurance Company). Rates can also vary between different insurance carriers and many insurers offer different rate levels based on the employers injury prevention plan or claims record.

Whether you are starting a new business venture or just looking for someone to take a fresh look at your current plan, United Insurance can help build a workers' compensation policy that’s just right for you and your business.
