Rate Framework (Archived): Current Apportionment of UFL

Since 1999, the UFL charge has been determined for Schedule 1 employers as a collective whole. The charge has then been apportioned to rate groups based on their share of new claim costs.

This methodology has been modified in recent years due to premium rate freezes or across the board premium rate changes for industry classes and rate groups. In this environment, the past claim costs charge, which includes the UFL charge, is determined by subtracting the new claim costs and overhead expense components from the premium rates of RGs.

The WSIB also considered an alternative method of apportioning the UFL charge.

The WSIB would like to hear from you! Please email us your questions or comments about the proposed preliminary Rate Framework to consultation_secretariat@wsib.on.ca.
