Warwick, R.I. – The Beacon Mutual Insurance Company today announced the distribution of an average five percent dividend to be paid in March 2022 to eligible policyholders.
“As a mutual insurance company, we are owned by our policyholders and it is in the mutual best interest of Beacon and our policyholder owners to distribute these funds to be invested back into their businesses. We hope that the dividend will allow business owners to invest in improvements in their workforce, facilities, training, safety and prevention programs,” said Beacon President & CEO Brian J. Spero.
Beacon will complete dividend distribution in March 2022 as a one-time payment to all eligible policyholders. The dividend will be distributed to approximately 96% of Beacon policyholders, 11,000 Rhode Island businesses, based upon their loss history.
This dividend program is designed to reward Beacon’s best performing policyholders and will be distributed based on premium size and safety results for policies in force as of December 31, 2021 and still in force as of February 28, 2022. This dividend recognizes policyholders who have contributed to Beacon Mutual’s financial strength by demonstrating safety as a priority in order to keep workers safe and losses low.
Raymond C. Coia, Chairman of the Beacon Board, said “I am very pleased that Beacon is able to provide our policyholders with this dividend and I am proud to be associated with an organization that always puts the interest of its policyholders and their employees first.”
Beacon Mutual has a successful 30-year history of protecting Rhode Island employers and employees through high-quality safety training programs and educational resources to prevent workplace accidents and to return injured employees to work with compassion and care.
