NEWS RELEASE: April 27, 2012

Texas Mutual Gives Schools, Manufacturers Combined $1M Boost

AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Mutual Insurance Company announced today that the Texas Schools Group and Texas Association of Manufacturers safety groups earned a combined $1,094,336 in dividends. The workers’ compensation dividends were based largely on each group’s overall loss ratio.

The largest dividend, $780,305, went to the Texas Association of Manufacturers safety group. The group has earned $3.4 million in Texas Mutual dividends since 2008.

Members of the Texas Schools Group earned a $314,031 dividend, a 61 percent increase over their 2011 dividend.

Unlike publicly traded insurance companies, mutual insurance companies are owned by their policyholders. Dividends allow Texas Mutual to share its financial success with its policyholder owners.

In addition to potential dividends, safety group members get discounts on their workers’ compensation premiums. They also have access to workplace safety materials designed for their operations.

Texas Mutual notes that past dividends are not a guarantee of future dividends, and the Texas Department of Insurance must approve all dividends.
