Important Note for Employers Regarding FEINs

Your firm's FEIN is the Board's primary identification for your business. Please note that each business that is a legal entity (e.g. sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc.) has its own, unique FEIN assigned to it. Generally, all businesses that have individuals providing services integral to the business must be listed as a legal entity on a workers' compensation insurance policy.

Please give your FEIN to your insurance carrier when obtaining or modifying your workers' compensation coverage. If you have multiple legal entities using employees, provide your carrier with the legal name and FEIN for each of these companies.

Once your firm has obtained a workers' compensation insurance policy, it is your carrier's responsibility to electronically notify the Board of that coverage using your firm's FEIN number(s).
