The Company Licensing and Registration Office handles filings for Texas Workers' Compensation Self-Insurance Groups (WCSIG). Sponsored by a Texas trade association, employer members may self insure for workers' compensation by forming a WCSIG. Individual employers wishing to self insure for workers' compensation may do so by becoming a certified self-insurer (see Self-Insurance Regulation).
WCSIGs at a minimum must have five employers, within a same/similar industry, sponsored by a bonafide Texas Association. Despite limited regulation, employer members operate under joint and several liable agreements and each WCSIG must be a member of and contribute to the Texas Self-Insurance Guaranty Fund.
To assist the WCSIG industry in regards to statutory/regulatory compliance, the following checklists and form are available. WCSIGs must complete and file the appropriate documents for review and/or approval in order to become licensed, cancel a license, or address any other transaction or compliance function that a WCSIG may enter into.
