We remain committed to maintaining a solid financial base. For a complete summary of Builders Mutual’s financial history, review our most recent Annual Report (2020).
Builders Mutual is one of the few carriers that offers a dividend to its policyholders. Since 1984, we are proud to have returned more than $66 million in dividends to our policyholders.
To help make that possible, Builders Mutual offers free safety programs and education to help policyholders reduce losses and qualify for dividends. Safer job-sites mean more productive job-sites, as well as a chance for reduced premiums and a dividend at the end of the year.
The dividend distribution in 2021 totaled $2.7 million. This dividend distribution is a direct result of policyholders’ conscientious efforts to make safety a priority.
