True-up online reporting

The True-up online report will be available on July 1, 2022. At the end of the policy year, we must ensure the estimated premium we set for you was correct. To do this, you must file a True-up report that reflects the actual payroll for that policy year. You must complete the report online using the Payroll True-up report service offering by August 15, 2022.
If your True-up payroll exceeds the estimated payroll, you'll owe additional premium. If your True-up payroll is less than your estimated payroll, you'll receive a premium credit.  An employer must submit a payroll True-up report even if it has zero payroll.

New Policy Year installments due

The first installment for the new policy year beginning July 1, 2022 was billed on May 27, 2022 and payment is due by June 21, 2022.  Employers can earn a 2% Early Payment Discount by paying their full estimated premium by July 1, 2022. Employers cannot deduct the discount when they submit their payment. 
Additionally, please do not submit payment for the first installment until after you have received an invoice.
