BWC to Mail up to $1.5 Billion in Checks Starting Next Week
The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation will start sending up to $1.5 billion in dividend checks to Ohio employers Sept. 26.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and BWC Administrator/CEO Stephanie McCloud announced plans in May to provide the money to employers following strong investment returns, falling injury claims, and other agency cost savings. The proposal was approved by BWC’s Board of Directors in June.
“We are committed to providing resources for Ohio businesses to expand, support their employees, and become stronger competitors in the global marketplace,” said Governor DeWine. “Because of BWC’s leadership and strong investments, Ohio employers will now have the opportunity to make additional investments in their businesses.”
