Less than two weeks ago, the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation board of directors approved to send up to $1.6 billion in dividends to Ohio employers. Today, Governor DeWine announced that a total of more than 170,000 checks will be mailed over the next five days.

This dividend is intended to ease the impact of COVID-19 on Ohio’s business community and the economy.  The dividend equals approximately 100% of the premiums paid in policy year 2018.

Approximately $1.4 billion will go to private employers and nearly $200 million will go to local government taxing districts, such as counties, cities, townships, and schools.
