WSIB first quarter report

July 7, 2015

The WSIB quarterly report for the 3 months ending March 31, 2015 shows a good investment quarter in which the WSIB earned 6% returns compared to 3.8% in 2014. Their premium revenues exceeded the operating expenses; allowing the transfer of $285 million to their investment fund.

The report indicates that there has been a decrease in claim volumes, that benefits payouts are down because “outcomes for injured workers continue to improve”, and that premium/assessment levels are slightly up because of slightly higher wages in the general population. The report indicates that benefit payouts are anticipated to decline further.
