What is the CCPAP?
The Contractors Credit Premium Adjustment Program provides a premium credit for construction industry employers who pay high hourly wages.  It applies only to the construction class codes -- it does not apply to office workers or other non-construction employees.

Who is eligible?
Every Missouri employer who has workers' compensation premium in one of the contracting classification codes. This includes any company that erects, demolishes, alters or repairs structures, and includes carpenters, plumbers, electricians, roofers, painters, landscapers, welders, machinery installers, concrete construction workers, earthmovers or drillers.

"Contracting classifications" are those classifications subject to the following code numbers:

How do I apply for the credit?
If your workers compensation policy has one of these construction classification codes, your insurer will automatically send you the form. If you have not received a form by your policy renewal date, contact your insurer. You must submit your form within 180 days from the date your policy renews or begins. The application form must be submitted to the National Council of Compensation Insurance (NCCI) for calculation. The address for the NCCI is:

NCCI Missouri Contractors' Credit Premium Adjustment Program
901 Peninsula Corporate Circle
Boca Raton, Florida 33487

How much of a credit can I get?
The amount of your credit depends on how your average hourly wage compares to the state average hourly wage.

There is a mathematical formula that is used to calculate the exact credit applicable to each policy. The calculation is generated by the NCCI based upon the payroll information supplied by the insured. If, after receiving notification of the credit to be applied, there are questions as to how the credit was calculated, the NCCI can be reached at 800-622-4123.

Do I have to fill out the form?
You should fill out the form to see if you qualify for the credit. If your average hourly wage is under $18, you do not have to submit the form. You will still get a form next year.
What time period is used to calculate the CCPAP?
Generally, if you had a policy last year, you will use last year's third quarter (July to September) payroll to calculate your average wage, excluding wages of executive officers, sole proprietors or partners. If you did not work during the third quarter, you will use payroll information for the last complete quarter you worked.
