LRA SIF Members to Receive More Than $2 Million in Dividends Next Year

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LRA SIF MEMBERS TO RECEIVE MORE THAN $2 MILLION IN DIVIDENDS NEXT YEAR

Amount brings total returned since 1988 to more than $100M

Metairie, LA- The Board of Trustees for the Louisiana Restaurant Association's Self Insurer's Fund (LRA SIF) for Workers' Compensation has approved declaring a dividend to eligible plan participants in the amount of $2.02 million.

The LRA SIF, since 1988, will have cumulatively returned approximately $101.7 million in surplus and safety dividends to eligible members.

For the 26th consecutive year, the Fund has declared a surplus in unused premium and interest income that will be returned to members. This surplus will include eligible participants from the fund years 2008, 2009 and 2010 and be paid in April 2014.

"The LRA SIF was pleased to lower its rates once again this fall, for the third time in four years," said LRA SIF President & CEO Stan Harris. "Our members have shown a commitment to workplace safety practices and as a result, we see lower accident rates. Our Fund is focused on best-in-class member services, combined with our complimentary loss prevention and safety training."

For 32 years, the LRA SIF has served as one of the most respected providers of workers' compensation insurance in Louisiana. The Fund's management continues to focus on efficiency and timely claims handling to keep its member costs very competitive. 

To be eligible for a dividend, the member must be in good standing with the LRA and the LRA SIF and have a loss ratio that is equal to or less than 70 percent for the years declared as of March 3, 2014.

In October 2013, the LRA SIF announced a rate reduction on premiums for its Fund, which specializes in the hospitality industry.

"Our members' positive outcomes allow us to lower their rates," said Harris.
