etroWhat is a Retro Program?


The Department of Labor & Industries has approved Group Retrospective Rating programs as an alternative for businesses currently participating in the state fund workers’ compensation program. Group retro programs are designed to save employers money by providing a refund of insurance premiums should developed losses for the group be less than the premiums paid. Historically, retrospective rating programs have resulted in premium returns of over 25%.

CCCHow does TCCC’s Retro Program Work?


The Tri-City Construction Council (TCCC) offers qualified businesses the opportunity to participate in a Group Retrospective Rating program designed for selected members. Since group retro refunds are dependent upon overall program performance, TCCC will ensure that the Retro Group is composed of organizations whose past history demonstrates a good claims history, commitment to safety and loss prevention, effective return to work programs and respectful and fair treatment of injured employees.

By participating in TCCC’s Group Retro program, you lower your risk while increasing the size of your refund.

Washington State Law requires that all Retrospective Rating Groups be made up of employer members who are engaged in substantially similar business operations when the nature of their services or work activities of employees is considered.  The Tri-City Construction Council is made up of construction and related industries.
