DEPARTMENT OF LABOR & INDUSTRY

STATE WORKERS’ INSURANCE FUND

APPLICATION FOR

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE COVERAGE - R

Dear Employer: Thank you for doing business in Pennsylvania! Please fill out this application accurately and completely. Doing so will help us process your application as quickly as possible.

It is mandatory that employers carry workers’ compensation insurance per the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Disease Acts.

Failure to comply with these laws subject employers to lawsuits by employees and criminal prosecution could result in substantial fines, imprisonment, or both.

The carrier must have an insurable interest to write a workers’ compensation policy; having no employees constitutes no insurable interest. State Workers’ Insurance Fund (SWIF) is prohibited from issuing a policy on an “if any” basis.

COMPLETE AND SIGN THE APPLICATION

Please complete and submit this application by mail to: State Workers’ Insurance Fund, 100 Lackawanna Ave, PO Box 5100, Scranton, PA 18505-5100.

Payment: Checks (black or blue ink only) and money orders should be payable to “SWIF.” Providing a check as payment authorizes SWIF to either make a one-time electronic fund transfer (EFT) from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. Cash payments are not accepted.

For policies less than $2,000 in premium, total payment is required. For policies $2,000 or greater in premium, SWIF requires a payment of 25 percent of the premium OR the minimum premium, whichever is greater, including the Employer’s Assessment Fee, Terrorism Fee, and Commercial Catastrophe Fee. Under certain circumstances, at SWIF’s discretion, the total premium may be required before coverage will be incepted. See 15. Payment Terms on page 6. For more information, visit www.dli.pa.gov/swif select “Underwriting,” then select “How to Obtain a Policy.”

Additional Information and Assistance: Should you have any questions about the application or coverage, please contact Customer Service at 570-963-4635.

SWIF does not offer waiver of subrogation endorsements.

If you are a sole proprietor, partners of a partnership, or members of an LLC, complete the Voluntary Election of Coverage form (SWIF-51) indicating your choice to accept or decline coverage.

If you are a corporate officer and/or owner choosing to waive your rights, complete and submit the Application for Executive Officer Exception (LIBC-509) & Executive Officer’s Declaration (LIBC-513) forms.

All required forms and resources may be found either on the SWIF website www.dli.pa.gov/swif or as specified in this application.

Any party who willfully makes a false statement or representation, deliberately conceals any material fact, or engages in any other fraudulent scheme or device, for the purpose of obtaining or attempting to obtain, or for the purpose of aiding or abetting any person to obtain insurance in the SWIF at less than the proper rate for such insurance, or payment out of SWIF to which such person is not entitled, is guilty of a crime. Providing false information on this application or engaging in fraud can lead to the applicant being disbarred from being awarded a contract with the commonwealth for as long as three years and may further lead to disbarment with local governments in the commonwealth.
