BWC Mailing Third Billion Back Rebate Checks this Month


Employers’ “Third Billion Back” rebate checks from the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) are on the way! The checks will arrive in a white envelope labeled IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS ENCLOSED and must be deposited before they expire in 90 days. Employers are free to spend their rebates as they wish, but BWC CEO/Administrator Sarah Morrison hopes they will consider investing in workplace safety. Here’s Administrator Morrison with the latest on the rebate in this short video. This is the third $1 billion rebate in the last four years, made possible by an improving safety climate, prudent fiscal management and strong investment returns. Eligible employers will receive checks that total 66% of their premiums for the policy year that ended June 30, 2016.
