Reducing Liability Exposure through an Agency Captive Solution

Summary:

A national building supply wholesaler sought to protect against unexpected high dollar claims on its employees’ long term workers compensation.

Challenge:

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.

Solution:

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.

Results:

The program has served the firm very well. The wholesaler was able to reduce its’ long-term liability by over 70%.
