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.
