DWC Approves 10 Companies to Self-Insure for Workers’ Compensation Claims

AUSTIN, TX — The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) approved one new Certificate of Authority to self-insure workers’ compensation claims and renewed nine such certificates. The companies receiving the certificates collectively employ approximately 36,243 employees in Texas.

The following company was issued a new self-insurance certificate:

  • Space Exploration Technologies Corp., Washington, DC

DWC renewed self-insurance certificates for the following companies:

  • International Paper Company, Memphis, TN

Under Texas law, certain large, private companies can self-insure for workers’ compensation claims, while retaining the protection of the Texas Workers’ Compensation Act for the company and for its employees. 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.
