Penn National Insurance declares a dividend for Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC group program ahead of schedule

Penn National Insurance is pleased to support commercial policyholders participating in the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC® group program by declaring a 3% dividend ahead of schedule.

The program offers chamber members affordable, comprehensive coverages on property and casualty insurance, including businessowners, commercial auto, general liability, inland marine and workers’ compensation. In addition, through safety consulting, Penn National Insurance encourages member businesses to develop safety practices to substantially reduce or eliminate workplace injuries.

Not only is this program a great benefit for chamber members, it also has an economic impact to the region, because dollars generated through premium and then paid in dividends stay in the region. Over $1.5 million has been returned to members.

Dividend payments accelerated in response to economic challenges presented by COVID-19

Harrisburg Regional Chamber and CREDC is one of six safety group programs that will receive dividend payments totaling $2.5 million up to four months ahead of schedule. Accelerating the calculation and distribution of the dividend payments is aimed at assisting business owners confronting the economic consequences of the pandemic.

The Penn National Insurance program is just one of many benefits of chamber membership. For more information, visit the chamber’s website at to find a member agent representing Penn National Insurance near you.
