This free seminar is designed specifically for Kansas employers in the workers compensation residual market and their insurance agents.

Learn how an effective loss prevention/control program may:
- Improve Your Loss Experience
- Lower Your Workers Compensation Insurance Premium
- Help You Maintain Control of Your Operations
There is no charge for this seminar. All attendees must register before the August 9, 2013 deadline to guarantee a seat. Course materials and continental breakfast are included.
Premium Credit for Residual Market Policyholders
Workers compensation residual market policyholders who attend this seminar may be eligible for a 5% premium credit, subject to a maximum credit of $250 to their new or renewal residual market policy which becomes effective from January 1 to December 31, 2013. The attendee must be an officer, partner, sole proprietor, or employee who administers workplace safety programs in order for the employer to receive this credit. The assigned carrier will determine the employer's eligibility for the premium credit at the time the final premium audit is processed. The credit will be applied as of the inception date of the eligible policy. The premium credit will not reduce the final premium below the minimum premium applicable to the policy.
Continuing Education Credits for Kansas Agents
Kansas licensed agents (resident only) will earn three property/casualty continuing education credits for attending this seminar. Agents will receive a certificate of attendance, and NCCI will electronically report credits to the state. If you attended this seminar in 2012, you are not eligible for credits again this year. Nonresident licensed agents may not use this seminar for out-of-state continuing education credits. A resident agent license number is required for electronic reporting.
