Workers' compensation is insurance the law requires your employer to carry at no cost to you. If you are injured on the job or become ill due to your job, workers’ compensation insurance can help by providing medical care and income, as well as assisting you in transitioning back to work as your recovery and condition allows.

Workers' compensation insurance covers various types of events, injuries, and illnesses. An injury could be caused by a single event, such as hurting your back in a fall at work. Injuries could also be caused by repeated exposure, such as hurting your wrist at work from doing the same motion over and over.

State Fund is the largest provider of workers’ compensation insurance in California, with a focus on keeping workplaces safe and preventing on-the-job accidents. When injuries do occur, State Fund provides peace of mind for injured employees and their employers with fast, reliable claims service, treatment options, and benefit delivery.
