State Fund Declares 15% Dividend for 2019 Policy Year

January 2, 2020

Pleasanton, CAState Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund) has announced plans to distribute an approximate $55 million dividend to its qualifying policyholders with policies that took effect between Aug. 20 and Dec. 31, 2019. This dividend equals approximately 15% of the estimated annual premium reported during that time period.

This announcement follows up State Fund’s August declaration of an approximate 15% mid-year dividend that applied to all policies incepted between Jan. 1 and Aug. 19, 2019. The dividend distribution for the entire year equals approximately $160 million.

“Our mission is to provide fairly priced workers’ compensation coverage to any California entrepreneur who needs it,” said Vern Steiner, State Fund’s President and CEO. “Our current operating performance and financial condition allow us to continue to fulfill that purpose and return money to our policyholders at the same time.”

Since its creation in 1914, State Fund has paid out more than $5 billion in dividends to policyholders.

State Fund policyholders eligible for a 2019 dividend will begin to receive dividend payments during the second half of 2020.
