10 Companies Approved to Self-Insure for Workers’ Compensation

AUSTIN, TX - The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' Compensation (TDI-DWC) approved one initial application and nine renewals of the Certificates of Authority for companies to self-insure their workers’ compensation claims for a one-year period under the TDI-DWC Self-Insurance Program. These ten companies collectively employ approximately 33,800 employees in Texas.

To qualify, a company must have a minimum workers' compensation insurance unmodified manual premium of $500,000 and meet other requirements subject to annual review. 

The following companies received self-insurance certificates:

  • ABF Freight System, Inc., Fort Smith, AR
