Disability Benefits Forms Employees


Completing Forms

If you require assistance with completing these forms, please contact us.

Forms are in PDF format. The Board recommends using the latest version of Adobe Reader which is available as a free download from Adobe's website. After the form opens, you may complete the form by typing information on the form before you print it. Please enter your information, select print and choose Microsoft Print to PDF and submit the saved PDF. Please note, that if you do not Print to PDF, the entered data may not be transmitted resulting in a blank form being submitted. If you have trouble opening a form: (1) download/save the form onto your computer, (2) open Adobe Reader, (3) open the saved file. If you still have trouble with the form, please email the Board's Forms Department.

Multi-page Forms
Two-sided and multi-page forms are to be printed and submitted to the Board in duplex format. If this is not possible, submit as separate sheets. However, do NOT submit to the Board any sheets that contain only instructions and/or reference material. Parties of interest other than the Board must receive both sides of all two-sided forms and all pages of multi-page forms.

Current Versions of Forms
WCB periodically releases new versions of certain forms to obtain additional information, streamline processing, and/or make it easier to complete the form. These changes are often extensive, and it is important for all stakeholders to use the same form so that information is consistent. As such, WCB may announce that it will not accept older versions of an updated form after a certain date. The table below has the most recent version of each form, and where older versions are no longer accepted, includes the notation "Only current version accepted."
