Pay Ohio BWC premium installment before 12/31/15

If your company pays its Ohio workers’ compensation premium every month or every other month, your next premium payment is due by 5 PM on Thursday December 31.

Do not wait until then to make your payment.  The BWC will probably be operating with a skeleton crew because of the holiday weekend and there may not be enough personnel to help you if something goes wrong.

You do not want to come to work on Monday January 4 and find out your coverage lapsed because there was a problem with your payment or the BWC website.

You do not want to come to work the last week of December and find out your computer has been hacked and you either need to pay ransom or restore to the most recent backup.  Yes, this just happened to one of my clients.
