Although much information is now filed electronically, the Ohio workers’ compensation system still uses forms to gather information. You can view forms on the BWC or the Industrial Commission web site. You can fill out some forms on-line.
- Always put your claim number in the upper right hand corner of every page of the form (or any other document you file), before filing.
- Have an extra copy of the form time-stamped and keep the copy for your records so you have proof that you filed the form. If you file a form electronically keep a copy of the receipt.
- If you want to highlight information, circle it or draw an arrow. Don’t use a highlighter, because it may make the information appear as a black line when the BWC scans the document.
