Nebraska Workers' Compensation Assigned Risk Plan
The Nebraska Workers Compensation Insurance Plan (NWCIP) provides workers' compensation and employers' liability coverage to employers who are unable to secure coverage through the voluntary market.
Beginning July 1, 2000, Travelers Indemnity Company replaces the previous residual market mechanism which was administered by Aon Risk Services, Inc. and Employers Insurance of Wausau.
Travelers will be the Plan Administrator and Contract Carrier for the Nebraska WCIP.

Nebraska Workers' Compensation Contract - Effective 01/01/2024
Nebraska Workers' Compensation Plan - Current
Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court
At the request of the Nebraska Workers' Compensation Court, the Nebraska Department of Insurance has drafted and approved a mandatory amendatory endorsement for attachment to policies providing specific and/or aggregate excess workers' compensation insurance for entities approved as self-insurers in the State of Nebraska. With policy information inserted, this endorsement should be attached to every specific and/or aggregate excess workers' compensation policy issued to an entity approved as a self-insurer in the State of Nebraska.
It is our intent not to approve any provisions in conflict with this endorsement. In addition, so-called "deductible endorsements" (of any form) and retrospective ratings will not be approved to be used for excess workers' compensation policies issued to an entity approved as a self-insurer in the State of Nebraska. These actions reflect the policies of the Workers' Compensation Court for approved workers' compensation self-insured employers.
