Effective July 1, 2013, the South Carolina General Assembly established, within the office of the State Accident Fund, the South Carolina Uninsured Employers’ Fund. The Uninsured Employers’ Fund was created to ensure payments of workers’ compensation benefits to injured employees whose employers have failed to acquire necessary coverage for their employees in accordance with South Carolina workers’ compensation laws.
Claims filed under the Uninsured Employers’ Fund should not list the State Accident Fund as the carrier on "uninsured employers" claims. Since these claims are regarding uninsured employers, be aware that the uninsured claims remain under the control of the Uninsured Employers’ Fund and not the State Accident Fund.
Below is the service address to ensure proper filing of a Form 50 involving alleged uninsured employers:
South Carolina Uninsured Employers’ Fund
Post Office Box 1815
Lexington, South Carolina 29071
