Cost Saving Programs

Workers’ Compensation

Save up to 53% on your premiums with traditional Group Rating, or up to 63% on Group Retrospective Rating through the ChamberComp® Program in partnership with Sheakley.

How it Works

Be part of one of the largest group savings programs in the state. ChamberComp™, in partnership with Sheakley, offers Group Rating and Group Retrospective Rating programs. Combined across our more than 30-year partnership, these two programs have saved Cincinnati Chamber members over $750 million in Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation premiums.


Ohio employers have the opportunity to participate in BWC’s Group-Experience-Rating Program or Group-Retrospective-Rating Program. While these programs are not required, they do provide an opportunity to significantly reduce workers’ compensation premiums, while increasing awareness of safety and risk-management strategies.

Members save $4,300 on average

This program provides a discount, shown on your premium statements, up to the maximum of 53%. That’s immediate savings on each payment to the BWC! The better your claims history, the more you can save. More than 3,400 Cincinnati Chamber participants save over $14.7 million in this program — that’s an average of just over $4,300 per participant.

Group Retrospective

Members save $24,000 on average

Commonly referred to as “group retro,” this program provides a refund to qualified participants and has proven to be a valuable option for companies who may not qualify for the highest group rating discounts due to one or more claims. Although participants need to wait for their refund to be paid by the BWC, current participants are expecting up to a 63% refund. More than 560 Cincinnati Chamber participants are projected to receive refunds of over $14.4 million combined – that’s an average of more than $24,400 per participant.

Qualifying members can earn additional BWC rebates from 2-4% by participating in our Greater Cincinnati Safety Council for FREE.

Additional Info

Sheakley, the Cincinnati-based administrator of ChamberComp®, determines eligibility for participants using company claims and payroll records provided by the state. Because ChamberComp™ is the largest program in southwestern Ohio, there are more group options for your company within the program, which could mean better savings than smaller programs.
