ICRB $250 Minimum Assessment The minimum assessment was eliminated in 2015.
Any insurance company that carriers a Class 2B insurance license in the state of Indiana (Class 2B is for workers compensation insurance) is automatically a member of the bureau per Indiana Code IC 27-7-2-3. Therefore, the $250 minimum assessment is valid for carriers that do not have sufficient direct written premium to qualify for quarterly assessments. The ICRB issues the $250 minimum assessment invoices each July.
