Workers Compensation Benefits Assistance

Workers Compensation Benefits Assistance

Provider: CALIFORNIA STATE DEPARTMENT OF INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS - LOS ANGELES BRANCH

The agency administers the benefits provided for wage earners who have a work-related injury or illness. The agency assists injured workers, employers, and workers' compensation insurance carriers to resolve disputed claims and coordinates with the department's Workers' Compensation Appeals Board which reviews appeals related to decisions made by this agency.

The services provided for workers include medical care, financial disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and benefits for dependents of workers who are killed on the job. Most California workers receive coverage through the State Compensation Insurance Fund. The department issues certificates to employers who wish to provide independent coverage and monitors the quality of these programs through its Self Insurance Plans Program (SIP). Federal employees have coverage monitored by the U.S. Department of Labor. APPLICATION PROCEDURE Call to obtain application information. FEES/PAYMENT SOURCE There are no fees for service.
