Calif. State Fund Offers Credit Extension for Heat Waves

August 25, 2006

California’s State Compensation Insurance Fund is extending credit to policyholders who have suffered a financial loss or business disruption caused by the recent severe heat wave.

“State Fund recognizes that the unprecedented heat has caused a significant disruption and hardship for some of our policyholders,” said State Fund Acting President James C. Tudor. “Our offer of credit relief is one way to help them return to normal operations.”

State Fund will work with employers who were unable to report payroll figures or submit payments as a result of the heat emergency. Dedicated customer service lines have been established to provide assistance to policyholders whose operations were impacted by the extreme weather. Affected policyholders are encouraged to contact the Customer Service Center at 800-388-0902 to make arrangements for July payroll reports and payments. The program will be offered to employers through a series of newspaper announcements and mailings to all State Fund policyholders. Separate notices will be provided at Heat Illness Prevention Seminars presented by State Fund and Cal OSHA.
