The Rating Effective Date (RED) appears on a risk’s experience rating worksheet. It is the earliest date that a specific modification is applied to a policy.
The RED may differ from the policy effective date for reasons including, but not limited to:
- Short-term policies
- Gaps in coverage
- Changes in ownership or combinability status
- Multiple policy effective dates Interstate operations
- A policy that is longer than one year and 16 days
- Late receipt of current policy information by the rating organization
Note: Wrap-up policies are not used to determine the RED.
Rating Effective Date Determination Table
|If the risk is…||Then the rating effective date is…|
|A single policy intrastate or interstate risk, orA multiple policy intrastate or interstate risk with all policies having the same effective date||The effective month and day of the most recent full-term policy in effect and each policy thereafter unless the date is changed due to a reason listed above.|
|A multiple policy intrastate risk with policies having different effective dates||The effective month and day of the most recent full-term policy in effect with the largest amount of estimated standard premium.|
|A multiple policy interstate risk with policies having different effective dates||The effective month and day of the most recent full-term policy in effect for the state with the largest amount of estimated standard premium.|
An experience rating modification will apply for:
- No less than three months, except for those impacted by changes in ownership and combinability status according to Rule 3
- No more than 15 months
- The experience rating modification applies for the full term of the policy if the policy begins on the RED or within three months after the RED.
- If a policy begins more than three months after the RED, the following procedure applies:
- The current experience rating modification applies to the new policy until the date the modification expires.
- A renewal experience rating modification applies to the new policy until the date the policy expires.
- A new RED may be established. Usually, this will be the date 12 months after the effective date of the new policy.
