As your workers’ compensation provider, Retailers Insurance Company is committed to helping you get care for your employees while controlling your costs. To do that, we urge you to maintain a safety focused environment and report claims immediately after the accident. Prompt medical care is essential for the workers’ return to health and the workplace which will, in turn, result in fewer benefits having to be paid under the insured’s policy.

When a worker is injured on the job, the sooner a claim is reported, the better. Wage loss benefits start after seven days and are retroactive to the date of injury if a worker is out for 14 days or longer. When an injury happens, follow this checklist to be ready to file the claim:
