Savings on Workers’ Compensation

SBAM’s Accident Fund program provides an upfront 5% premium discount, and the program is dividend eligible. Dividend eligibility simply means that if the comparison of our premiums earned versus claims paid falls into the right range, then you get money back. We’re pleased to tell you that our enrolled members are receiving a 2% dividend payment this year!

The discounted workers’ compensation rates and dividend program available through Accident Fund is a great example of how SBAM, and the buying power of our thousands of members from across Michigan, can benefit your company. The savings you receive are well above the amount you pay for the cost of an SBAM annual membership.
