DWC’s Subsequent Injury Fund (a separate account at the State Treasury) was recently audited by an actuary.  The SIF is funded solely by death benefit payments from insurance carriers where a compensable death occurs but there is no eligible beneficiary, or the claim for benefits is untimely.  We don’t understand all the numbers, but the bottom line appears to be that insurance carriers are safe from being assessed to make up for any negative balance at the SIF for the foreseeable future.  A link to the report can be found here
