State Fund Supports California During COVID-19 Crisis

As many businesses continue to feel the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, State Fund has established two separate funds to help policyholders defray the costs of protecting employees.

  1. *** NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS*** The Returning California to Work COVID-19 Safety Protocol Fund – established to help policyholders in non-essential business sectors who have re-opened their businesses or are planning to resume operations cover the costs of implementing safety measures in the workplace to protect employees from the COVID-19 virus.

  2. The Essential Business Support Fund – designed to help businesses deemed essential by Governor Newsom’s executive order defray the costs of protecting essential workers from COVID-19.

We are currently accepting applications for both funds. Policyholders may apply for one grant fund only.

Policyholder Support

  1. We’ve established two new funds to support the health and recovery of essential workers and workplace safety during the COVID-19 crisis.

  2. We’ve placed a moratorium on policy cancellations and late payment penalties. We will also extend credit to any business negatively impacted by COVID-19 events and offer businesses the ability to adjust their payroll reporting.

  3. Because the health and safety of California business owners, workers, and its own employees is its highest priority, we have postponed all site visits.

  4. We executed a work-at-home program that is allowing the vast majority of our employees to work remotely--we remain open for business and are ready to assist policyholders with all of their workers’ compensation needs.

To ask questions, adjust payroll or request a credit extension, policyholders can call (888) 782-8338.
