OhioBWC - Employer:  (Self-insuring) - Assessments and descriptions

Assessments and descriptions
 

BWC evaluates the self-insured assessment rates annually to make sure there is a minimum balance, and to guarantee payments of claims against the various funds. We have listed the 2017 rates beside the 2016 rates as a comparison in the table below. Changes in the rates are a function of paid compensation reported by self-insuring employers and costs paid on behalf of self-insuring employers. The assessments based upon the 2017 rates will be paid in February and August 2018. For more information about these assessments, view our Self-Insuring Assessments Frequently Asked Questions sheet.

If the paid compensation for a self-insuring employer for calendar year 2016 is less than $14,416.15 the minimum assessment to be paid is also listed for each mandatory assessment.
