The Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation is issuing a dividend of up to $1.5 billion to ease the financial pressures your organization may be experiencing amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This is their second dividend of this magnitude this year, following Governor DeWine’s order that his agencies do everything they can to mitigate COVID-19’s impact on Ohioans. Even after the dividend, the net position of the State Insurance Fund for injured workers remains strong due to investment returns, declining injuries and decreasing reserves.
