“By the distribution of our dividend during the first quarter of 2021, we hope to assist our policyholders facing challenging financial circumstances due to COVID-19. As a mutual insurance company, we are owned by our policyholders and it is in the mutual best interest of Beacon and our policyholders to distribute these funds when they are most needed,” said Beacon President & CEO Brian J. Spero.
Beacon will complete dividend distribution in March 2021 as an one-time payment to all eligible policyholders.
