The Workers' Compensation Board now offers an option which allows documents from the Board's Claims Information System to be transmitted as .pdf images or a .zip file to the requester at no charge. Currently, when case copies are requested, the Norwich Records Center sends the requestor Form WEC-333 which states the required charge for the case copies. If a case is electronic, Norwich Records Center will include Form WEC -333.2, which explains to the requestor how an electronic copy can be obtained . If you are interested in obtaining your requested copies electronically , you must complete Form WEC-333.2 and provide the Board with a valid e-mail address. The Board will send you an e-mail containing instructions and a temporary User ID and password which will enable access to a secure area of the Board's Website from which the requested file can be downloaded. All paper documents which are associated to an electronic Board file can also be obtained , but will be provided in paper form after proper payment is received. Please note, any request for claimant records should be made by utilizing the Board Form OC -110A, or a notarized original authorization which directs the Board to release only workers' compensation records to a specific person, as required by WCL Section 110-a(3).
