An employer who wishes to self insure for workers' compensation can do so in one of two ways: (1) by becoming an individual self-insurer or (2) by becoming a member of a self insured group. Political subdivisions must also provide workers' compensation coverage to their employees, and they may elect to self-insure those benefits.
To help in closing out the Special Disability Fund the Board has sent a letter to each self-insured employer, all compensation insurance carriers and the State Insurance Fund . The Board has also prepared answers to common questions to assist in this process.
