This is the fifth straight year the state’s largest workers’ compensation provider has distributed dividends.

Most (95%) of Pinnacol’s policyholders are eligible to receive a dividend, comprising more than 50,000 employers throughout the state.

The average dividend check will be $1,319. Checks started to be mailed beginning March 24, according to the company.
