Berkley Asset Protection Issues Dividends to Eligible Workers’ Compensation Policyholders

“We are pleased with the results and happy to reward members for their diligence.”




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Berkley Asset Protection, a Berkley Company, has dispersed this year’s dividends to eligible policyholders in its Workers’ Compensation Safety Group & Dividend Plans. Dividends represent a percentage of 2020 earned premium based on the loss ratio of each group and the dividends for 2022 range from 29% to 35%. To be eligible for the dividend, policyholders must have been insured in a plan by December 31, 2020.

Berkley Asset Protection created the Workers’ Compensation Safety Group & Dividend Plans as an incentive for businesses to focus on safety for their employees, one of their most important assets.

“Members of our Safety Group have shown a dedication to safety and loss prevention,” says Berkley Asset Protection President Chip Dowd. “We are pleased with the results and happy to reward members for their diligence.”

Safety Group & Dividend Plans offer three major advantages:

  • Dividends up to 35% of policy premium paid to policyholders based on the group’s loss experience;
  • Loss control help for a safer workplace;
  • Return-to-work program to reduce costs and manage expenses when losses do occur.

Berkley Asset Protection’s Safety Group & Dividend Plans are offered exclusively to businesses in each plan’s specified industry. The Jewelers Plan is open to businesses engaged in the sale of retail jewelry, wholesale and manufacturing of jewelry, findings and parts, industry tools, gift boxes, and other products associated with jewelry retail and manufacturing. The Fine Art Plan includes museums, art galleries, colleges and universities, artist foundations and more.
The Safety Group & Dividend Plans are available in all states, except Minnesota and Florida. Berkley Asset Protection’s standard Workers’ Compensation Program is available in all states, except those with a monopolistic state fund.

When There’s No Succession Plan, Call Wilkerson

Bob Wesley, owner of Robert C. Wesley Jewelers in Scottsdale, Ariz., was a third-generation jeweler. When it was time to enjoy life on the other side of the counter, he weighed his options. His lease was nearing renewal time and with no succession plan, he decided it was time to call Wilkerson. There was plenty of inventory to sell and at first, says Wesley, he thought he might try to manage a sale himself. But he’s glad he didn’t. “There’s no way I could have done this as well as Wilkerson,” he says. Wilkerson took responsibility for the entire event, with every detail — from advertising to accounting — done, dusted and managed by the Wilkerson team. “It’s the complete package,” he says of the Wilkerson method of helping jewelers to easily go on to the next phase of their lives. “There’s no way any retailer can duplicate what they’ve done.”
