ASA-Colorado Members Receive $136K in Dividends
The Automotive Service Association of Colorado (ASA-CO) is happy to announce that Pinnacol Assurance has paid a total of $136,674 in premium dividends to ASA-Colorado members through its "ASA of Colorado Members Only" Workers' Comp Program.
In this program, members receive a 4 percent premium discount for participation in group safety programs and initiatives, and subsequently participating members are entitled to declared group dividends. ASA-CO has declared dividends for five out of the last six years.
As an example: a member who pays $5,000 in workers' comp premiums would save $250 for the premium discount for being in the program and $850 in dividends for the 2007 to 2008 policy period. The workers' comp program alone may pay for a member's association dues.
ASA-Colorado is also a recipient of the dividend money, which goes back into programs for its members.
