Date: November 20, 2009
The Workers' Compensation Board now allows documents related to claims for compensation to be filed with the Board as email attachments. Documents related to non-claims matters may not be filed as email attachments. The following email address is to be used:
A separate email is required for each claimant with the Subject Line containing the WCB case number and/or claimant name. Multiple forms or documents for an individual claimant may be submitted as separate attachments or as one attachment containing multiple documents. Whenever possible, a single attachment should contain no more than 25 pages. Any email containing an attachment larger than 20 Megabytes will be rejected in its entirety.
Attachments to emails will be accepted in the following formats only:
.txt, .dat, .jpeg, .gif, .bmp, .tif, .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, .ppt, .pptx
Emails will be accepted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The received date for all documents emailed to the above address will be recorded by a stamp on the document that indicates the complete date and time the email was received; e.g., "Received by WCB Email on 11/13/2009 9:41:16 AM".
Forms That Should Not Be Emailed:
When emailing a document to the Board, please be sure that it is complete and has full case identification information including the WCB case number.
Thank you for your cooperation.
