Group #204, EB Cohen has once again delivered the type of solution that today’s prop- erty owners and managers need to succeed. Workers’ Compensation rates have risen 24% over the past three years (NJ code 9015 5.81 to 7.20). These increases are compounded because many owners and managers are unable to find worker compensation car- riers willing to offer any credits and in many cases, the policies in the assigned risk plan are being debited. In the end, most owners and managers are told that all workers’ compensation policies are the same because the state rate is the same for each carrier. Owners and managers are further frustrated by cumbersome audits throughout the year which results in a significant amount of wasted time spent trying to reconcile payrolls and 1099 payments which do not align with the calendar year. However, more and more often, savvy owners are find- ing out that this myth simply is not true. These ‘best prac- tices’ owners and managers are finding out that they can benefit in the following ways by utilizing Safety Group #204 for their workers’ com- pensation needs: 1. An up-front discount of 20% is available for most NJAA members (this is the maximum available in NJ and does not include further credits available through ex- perience rating factors) 2. A calendar year policy anniversary date helps expe- dite audits in a couple ways; first it allows for multiple policies to be audited at once because they share a com- mon expiration date, and second, it allows for easier calculation of both payroll figures and 1099 payments.
