Additional Information

The only way the premium can generally change is upon audit of the underlying exposure. For example, a workers compensation guaranteed cost premium is developed from a rate applied per 100 dollars of estimated payroll. If the actual payroll during the policy term is more or less than the estimate, the premium is adjusted accordingly.
