Budget/funding of workers’ compensation in Oregon
WCD administers the state’s laws and rules governing workers’ compensation. The division’s operating budget comes from a dedicated fund that is not part of the state’s general fund. The director of DCBS imposes an assessment on all insurers, self-insured employers, and self-insured employer groups. The assessment is levied against the insurers’ direct earned premium and a simulated earned premium for self-insured employers. These assessments are deposited into the Consumer & Business Services Fund. No General Fund revenue is used to support the division’s budget.

Effective January 1, 2013, the assessment will be set at an amount equal to 6.4 percent of the premiums charged for workers' compensation coverage.
