BATON ROUGE, La. - April 26, 2019 - The Retailers Casualty Insurance Company board of directors has declared a $1 million dividend for the 2017 policy year, and dividends to qualifying policyholders have been distributed, either by a mailed check or a credit to their account.
Each dividend is in proportion to qualifying policyholder premium and loss ratio-the better their record, the higher the return. The amount of dividend paid to qualifying policyholders with zero losses will be 7.7 percent of their normal premium. Policyholders must meet minimum requirements, and dividends are not guaranteed.
"Retailers Casualty Insurance Company continues to provide stable workers' comp coverage for our policyholders and rewards those who keep their losses low," states Carl Carstens, chairman of the Retailers Casualty board of directors.
"Summit continues to offer support through loss prevention and claims cost containment services to help make these dividends possible," says Hank Chiles, senior vice president responsible for Summit's Southwest Region. "The potential for dividends-combined with exceptional service-continue to make Retailers Casualty Insurance Company one of the best workers' compensation programs in the market."
