TWIA Posts 2022 Rate Adequacy Analysis

TWIA’s 2022 Rate Adequacy Analysis indicates that TWIA’s current rates are inadequate by 15 percent for residential coverage and 11 percent for commercial coverage.

The Rate Adequacy Analysis is a professional estimate by TWIA's actuarial staff of the extent to which rates are sufficient to cover the Association's operating expenses and its expected losses from claims. The 2022 Analysis shows continued improvement in the Association’s rate adequacy.
