  • GRIP Local Retro Program

  • What is a retro program?

    Retrospective Rating (Retro) is an incentive program offered by Labor & Industries (L&I). In Retro you can earn a partial refund of your workers’ compensation premiums if you prevent workplace injuries and manage your claims costs.

    What is GRIP?

    GRIP is the local Retro for Master Builders Association (MBA) members, serving more than 1,100 companies in King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. We help employers lower their L&I premiums, maximize Retro refunds, and handle claims effectively. In 2017, GRIP participants received over $12.4 million* in refunds.
