The automated system generates a Claim Number for each new claim. This "Board Claim Number" appears on every form. It is a 10-digit number with the first four digits identifying the year the claim is created at the Board (not the year of the injury). This number is a unique identifier for the claim. This unique identifier helps the Board manage the data about that claim and distinguish it from other claims. Once the data from the initiating claim is entered, the system will auto-populate the data in subsequent forms.
Please remember: if you are submitting claim-related information (other than an originating document such as a WC-1 or WC-14, Notice of Claim), you must include this unique claim number.
