Ohio Employers to Receive Dividend from Bureau of Workers’ Compensation

Some good news for Ohio businesses. To help Ohio’s economy and business community withstand COVID-19’s challenges, which include temporary business closings, stay-at-home orders, and the record number of unemployment assistance, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s Board of Directors approved a $1.6 billion dividend to be paid to Ohio employers.

The BWC stated that the dividend equals approximately 100% of the premiums employers paid in the policy year 2018. Of the $1.6 billion dividends, approximately $1.4 billion would go to private employers and approximately $200 million would go to local government taxing districts, such as counties, cities, townships and schools.

Checks are expected to be mailed in batches to employers later this month.
