(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 the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
