(PRESS RELEASE) Berkley Asset Protection continues to help protect business and employees as it mails dividend checks to eligible policyholders in its Workers Compensation Safety Group & Dividend Plans. These dividends – which totaled nearly $93,000 in 2020 and 2019 when the program started – incentivize businesses to care for their employees, one of their most important assets.

The dividend is a percentage of policyholders’ 2018 earned premium based on the loss ratio of each group.

“The dividends paid in 2020 range from 8% to 35%, the maximum allowed by the plans,” stated Chip Dowd, President of Berkley Asset Protection. To be eligible for the dividend, policyholders must have been insured in the plan on Dec. 31, 2018.

  • Jewelers Plan policyholders earned an 8% dividend based on the 2018 loss ratio.
  • Fine Art Plan policyholders will receive the maximum 35% based on the 2018 loss experience.

Safety Group & Dividend Plans offer three major advantages:

  1. Dividends up to 35% of policy premium paid to policyholders based on the group’s loss experience.
  2. Loss control help for a safer workplace.
  3. 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 includes sale of retail jewelry, wholesale and manufacturing of jewelry, findings and parts, industry tools, gift boxes, etc.

A short video about the program is available on the company’s website.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
