Mississippi business insurance requirements

Blue check mark

Workers' compensation insurance

Mississippi state law requires all businesses that regularly employ five or more workers to purchase worker’s compensation insurance. State law does not require businesses to carry workers' comp for independent contractors.

This policy covers medical costs from work-related injuries and illnesses. It also provides disability benefits to injured Mississippi workers.

Blue check mark

Commercial auto insurance

All business-owned vehicles in Mississippi must be covered by commercial auto insurance. This policy covers the cost of accidents involving work vehicles.

Mississippi requires a minimum of:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability

Trucking companies may need additional coverage to comply with regulations.

Though it's not required, personal vehicles driven for work purposes should be covered by hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA), as personal auto policies usually exclude business use. It can be added to general liability insurance or a business owner's policy (BOP).
