What is Workers’ Benefit Fund Assessment?

This is an Oregon payroll assessment paid quarterly.  Employers pay at least half of this assessment. The WBF assessment pays for certain programs that provide direct benefits to injured works and their beneficiaries. The fund also provides money to help employers help injured works return to work. Employers may deduct no more than half of this assessment from workers’ wages.  Employers then submit the total to the state through Oregon’s Combined Payroll-Tax Reporting System (Quarterly Reports).
