A Billion Dollars Now in Employers’ Hands


Most employers should by now have received their Billion Back checks from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). Private employers participating in the Group Retro Program can expect to see their rebate checks in early fall. If you are not in a Group Retro Program and you haven’t received your Billion Back rebate, call the BWC at (800) 644-6292. Most rebate recipients will receive Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 1099 tax documents. BWC will send 1099 forms no later than Jan. 31, 2018. 8/17/2017
