What Is The Status Of My Workers Compensation Claim? (Was It Approved? Where Is My Time-Loss Check?)

L&I manages over 170,000 workers’ compensation claims each year. Each claim has a number and is assigned to a claims manager. The injured worker will be notified shortly after a claim is filed as to what that number is and how to contact the claims manager. Because of the volume of claims, we can’t always answer questions as quickly as we’d like. You eventually will be able to get your answers on­line. But for now, L&I maintains a toll­free number for questions about claims (1­800­831­5227).
