A national building supply wholesaler sought to protect against unexpected high dollar claims on its employees’ long term workers compensation.
The multi-billion dollar business found that the occasional big dollar hit from a workers compensation claim – often many years later- could be very detrimental to the company’s finances.
The Risk Manager wondered why the firm didn’t utilize a captive program to take part of the risk of the long term workers compensation liability.
Accordingly, he transferred the long-term workers compensation claims (over $50K and up to $1M) to a captive via deductible reimbursement.
The program has served the firm very well. The wholesaler was able to reduce its’ long-term liability by over 70%.
