We are in the process of identifying interested representatives from the IMWCA membership to apply for an open seat on the board. You must be an elected or appointed official from a member city to be eligible for this position.

The IMWCA Board of Trustees governs the operations of the association and meets five times a year with staff from the Iowa League of Cities who provides the administrative services for the association.

Preparing for an Audit workers' compensation

FY 22-23 NCCI Rates Available

The new NCCI rates for the 2022-23 policy period have been approved by the Iowa Insurance Commissioner’s office and are now available. The new 2022-23 experience modification factors will be available from IMWCA on or around January 10. Please check back in early January for more information regarding mod factors.  Any questions contact Andrew Justice at andrewjustice@iowaleague.org or (800) 257-2708.

Introducing Electronic Workers’ Compensation Documents

You can access your workers’ compensation documents electronically by logging into your Member portal. The IMWCA Member portal houses your monthly claims reports, annual payroll worksheets and annual audit documents. Your premium invoices will still arrive via postal mail and you may request paper copies of your renewal documents.

Focus on Junior Firefighters Changes

In response to member requests, IMWCA will begin to cover junior firefighters and cadets as volunteer firefighters on July 1, 2021, for workers’ compensation. This means they will need to meet the volunteer firefighter criteria and they will be counted as a volunteer firefighter for payroll purposes.  Please have your fire chief fill out the junior/cadet firefighters form to provide information about your program.

We are proud to be your partner in helping your employees return home safely. Please contact Andrew with questions at andrewjustice@iowaleague.org or (800) 257-2708.
