BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

KEMI to issue $8 million comp dividend


Kentucky Employers Mutual Insurance announced Monday that it would issue an $8.1 million dividend to eligible workers compensation policyholders and an additional nearly $7 million to the state’s school boards insurance trust fund.

More than 13,000 policyholders are expected to receive a dividend, KEMI said in a statement. Qualifying policyholders must have an active policy and a loss ratio of less than or equal to 65% for their 2017 policy. KEMI will begin mailing checks Nov. 17.

The insurer’s board of directors also approved a refund of $6.75 million to the Kentucky School Boards Insurance Trust Workers Compensation Fund, and proposed a 6.4% overall rate reduction. If approved by the Kentucky Department of Insurance, the reduction will take effect Jan. 1, 2021, and apply to both new and renewal policies.
