If you are injured on the job, you can file a claim for benefits.
Any worker injured while performing assigned job duties during assigned work hours is covered under the workers’ compensation program and eligible for benefits.
Workers’ compensation is an accident insurance program paid by your employer which may provide you with medical, rehabilitation, and income benefits. Benefits are paid by the employer’s insurance company, not the State Board of Workers’ Compensation. Please read the Employee Handbook to learn more about each type of benefits.
Your employer’s insurance company has 21 days to investigate the injury and file a report with the State Board of Workers’ Compensation (SBWC). You can file a notice of claim yourself and also request a hearing or mediation to determine benefits. You have 1 year from the date of the reported injury to file a claim with SBWC.
