BWC forgives premiums until June 1

Written on May 1, 2020

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) announced March 21 that insurance premium installment payments due for March, April and May for the current policy year may be deferred until June 1, 2020. 

"BWC will not cancel coverage or assess penalties for amounts not paid because of the coronavirus pandemic," said Lt. Governor Jon Husted. "Installment payments due for the three-month period are totaled at approximately $200 million, and that money will now stay in the economy." 

The issue will be reconsidered June 1. Additionally, BWC will not cancel coverage or assess penalties for amounts not paid because of COVID-19.
