Employers now eligible for DWS credits

Jun 8, 2017 - From staff reports

The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services will be issuing premium credits to eligible Wyoming employers enrolled in the workers' compensation program starting this August.

The one-time premium credit is the result of a bill passed by the Wyoming Legislature and signed into law by Governor Mead. The 8.33 percent credit can be used by employers toward their workers' compensation premium starting August 1, 2017, and applied toward premium payments until January 31, 2018. If not used during that timeframe, the opportunity to apply the credit toward premium will expire on January 31, 2018.

In order to be eligible for the credit, employers must have made premium payments in calendar year 2016, and are required to be in good standing with the Workers' Compensation Division on all required workers' compensation payments as of June 15, 2017.

Employers can should contact the Division at 307-777-6763.
