COVID-19 Hypothetical Scenarios Tool

Intended Use

The calculations presented in this tool model the potential impact to expected losses for the associated jurisdiction and workforce under the scenario framework described in NCCI’s research briefs, “COVID-19 and Workers Compensation: Modeling Potential Impacts (PDF)" and "COVID-19 and Workers Compensation: Permanent Disability (PDF).”

NOTE: The model scenario may not include consideration of all potential benefit costs such as mental illness and employers liability.
