2023 Rate Change and Florida Insurance Guaranty Association Assessment
November 01, 2022
The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) has approved changes effective January 1, 2023, to all Personal Lines for new and renewal business to:
- Increase the statutory maximum allowable individual rate change cap to 12% (“glidepath”)
- Institute a 2023 Florida Insurance Guaranty Association Assessment (FIGA) Regular Assessment
Rate Changes (All Types)
For policies written on or after January 1, 2023, the statutory maximum allowable cap for individual rate changes (“glidepath”) will be 12%, excluding coverage changes, mitigation adjustments, rate changes for sinkhole loss coverage, assessments and surcharges, as well as a required rapid cash build-up provision for the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund, if applicable.
Note: As a result of Senate Bill 76, Citizens began increasing the capped "glide path" on rate increases by 1% annually until the cap reaches 15% in 2026.
Florida Insurance Guaranty Association Assessment
For new and renewal policies effective January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023, a FIGA assessment factor of 0.007 (or 0.70%) will be applied (minimum charge of $1).
Note: This is in addition to the 2022B FIGA assessment announced in the May 2, 2022, Personal Lines Bulletin.
The additional approved assessment is necessary to secure funds for Claims payments due to the insolvency of insurance companies.
The 2023 FIGA Regular Assessment will display in PolicyCenter® in the Mandatory Additional Surcharges section and on the Declarations page in the Required Additional Charges section.
