MGIA Worker's Compensation Group Dividend Program with Accident Fund Insurance Company of America
MGIA's group dividend program will provide you with the tools and coverage you need. The group dividend program offers low-cost group rates with a 5% up-front discount on worker's compensation for qualifying MGIA members, with no minimum premium to qualify. Although dividends cannot be guaranteed and must be approved by Accident Funds Board of Directors, dividends are based on the premium of the group as a whole, losses of the group as a whole and cost of insurance. For more information or a list of participating member insurance agencies and appointed agents throughout the State, contact MGIA at (248) 646-4992.
