The Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California announced it will be amending its recommended rate filing to the state insurance commissioner, recommending a 27.7 percent increase in the claim cost benchmark, instead of a 29.6 percent increase in the benchmark, or pure premium rates, it requested in August.
