No one can predict injury or illness at work, but we’ll help you prepare. At Gusto, workers’ comp enrollment is fast—and in many states, it’s the law.
Adding workers’ comp insurance through our partner NEXT Insurance is quick, easy, and won’t overburden your budget.
Answer a few simple questions to get your policy. Talk to an agent if you need help.
Sync your policy to payroll
NEXT Insurance integrates with Gusto to deduct the correct premium every payroll, saving time while reducing errors and simplifying audits.
Ease your cash flow
Your premium is spread out over a year, with a portion paid every payroll. No down payments, installment fees, or year-end surprises.
An easier way to pay: Other traditional workers’ comp providers require a large down payment upfront. Not us.
Workers’ comp covers your team’s medical expenses and wage replacement if they’re injured at work, while also protecting you from legal liability.

Insights and reporting
Do you offer workers’ comp in my state?
Through our partner Next Insurance, we offer workers’ comp in all states where private policies are required. Check out the requirements for your state.
How do I enroll?
Once you’ve added your employees to Gusto, you can apply for a policy in just a few clicks. You’ll get an estimate instantly, plus a final quote in a day or two from our workers’ comp insurance partner, Next Insurance. Everything is done online, including digitally signing your policy.
How do pay-as-you-go payments work?
Next Insurance automatically withdraws only the amount you owe each period based on your actual payroll. This can help you avoid lump sum payments at the beginning and end of the year.
Do you help with Workers’ Comp?
