Nearly 80% of NYS Dealers Can't be Wrong
Safety Group 430-Dealers' Choice for 67+ Years
We all remember our grandfather saying, “Buyer beware” or “Look before you leap” or “There’s no free lunch” when something looked too good to be true. For dealers shop for workers’ compensation insurance coverage, grandfather’s admonishments might be good to remember. While consumers always benefit from competition, in New York State viable choices for purchasing workers’ comp are limited. Some insurance providers are only nominally in the business in our state and are unwilling to offer competitive rates or stay committed to remain in the marketplace for the long haul. So dealers should be wary and prepared to ask critical questions of those seeking their business. Some of these questions are:

1. Does the insurance company pay a year-end dividend? How is the dividend calculated and paid? Dividends are not automatic and not all companies offer them. The companies that do base the dividend on the individual dealership’s loss experience and possible other factors. Dividends can take up to eighteen months or more to determine what the amount will be, if any. Typically the dividend is paid in installments resulting in a period of many years before the full value of the dividend is realized. Safety Group 430 and the State Insurance Fund pay group members a dividend based on the entire group’s experience, in one lump payment and in less than a year after the end of the policy year. For over 64 years, Safety Group 430 has paid a dividend to its members totaling in aggregate over $261 million.

2. Does the company offer an upfront premium discount? If they do, how is it arrived at. First off, not all companies do offer an upfront discount and those who do often place conditions on the offer. An example may be a “Managed Care” discount. The offer should be questioned to determine how it works and if there are penalties involved. Safety Group 430 has offered members an upfront discount for over 64 years that, with a few exceptions, it is available to the entire group. In 2016 Safety Group 430’s upfront discount is an astounding 30%.

3. Does the company have a proven loss prevention and health and safety program? Many companies perform an initial dealership inspection as part of the quoting process, but that is the extent of their safety services. Established Health and Safety programs conduct periodic inspections and offer assistance in curtailing the risk of claims. As a matter of course, Safety Group 430 conducts annual health and Safety/OSHA awareness inspections in order to prevent possible accidents or forestall any OSHA penalties.

Please consider Safety Group 430, the largest new vehicle dealers’ workers compensation group program in New York State for 67 continuous years when shopping your 2017 policy.

Most importantly, for those dealers in Safety Group 430, your participation is greatly appreciated.
