Check the Mail: The BWC is Giving Back a Billion Dollars

On May 30, the BWC Board of Directors approved a $1 billion rebate for 210,000 private and public employer taxing districts.

For eligible employers, the rebate will be equal to 56 percent of that the BWC billed them during the last policy period:

For private employers that is July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012, and for public taxing districts that is January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.

The rebates are possible thanks to prudent management and smart business investments.

The BWC expected to mail most of the rebates in late June and early July. Private employers who participate in a group, retrospective rating program will receive their rebates in the fall.

The rebate is part of a three-pronged approach to making the BWC a partner in Ohio's economic resurgence.
