Important Dates For The Ohio BWC 2019 Policy Year

Spooner helps clients stay on track with the Ohio BWC policy year | Cleveland, Ohio

The Ohio BWC 2019 Policy Year

The Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC) will set a schedule every year for both private and public employers. It's very important for employers to know what the dates are for these important deadlines, especially when the policy year begins and ends. 

July 1st is the beginning of the 2019 policy year. This means that the 2018 BWC policy year won't end until June 30th.

True-Up Deadline

True-up is a process that requires Ohio employers to report their payroll for the previous policy year. This allows the BWC to accurately calculate your premium.  A true-up report is also necessary for maintaining your policy and your eligibility in your current rating plan or discount programs. This is important for all employers in the private sector because if you don't true-up, then you will not be eligible for programs in 2020. 

Important Deadlines for Ohio BWC Schedule:

  • January 31, 2019: 2019 Group Retro Enrollment Deadline
  • July 1, 2019: Beginning of 2019 policy
  • August 15, 2019: True-up Report Deadline
  • September 20, 2019: Snapshot date for experience calculation
  • November 25, 2019: 2020 Group Rating Enrollment Deadline
