$10 Million in BWC Rebate Checks Remain Uncashed

Nearly $10 million in rebate checks from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) remain uncashed by more than 5,500 employers who might not even know it.

The uncashed checks are among the more than 160,000 BWC issued in July as part of the agency’s Third Billion Back rebate initiative. Uncashed checks will expire, or stale date, 95 days after the check’s issuance date. That’s this week for some employers and as late as Oct. 18 for others.

Employers participating in a BWC Group Retrospective Rating Program should receive their checks later this month.

The agency will reissue checks after the stale date following a brief lag time for processing.
