Oldwick, NJ -(BusinessWire)- A.M. Best Co. will present a webinar titled, “State-Run Workers’ Compensation Funds: Their Role in the Competitive Marketplace” on Wednesday, July 10, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
Throughout the United States, workers’ compensation funds run by individual states control a significant portion of the workers’ compensation business.

- Roger J. Fries, Recently Retired President & CEO, Kentucky Employers’ Mutual
