What if I have an accident at work?

  • All State employees must notify their supervisor immediately if they have sustained an on-the-job injury.

  • For injuries with a date of accident on or after April 25, 2013, failure to notify an employer within the earliest of the following dates could jeopardize compensation: 20 calendar days from the date of accident or the date of injury by repetitive trauma.

    • If the employee is working for the employer against whom benefits are being sought and such employee seeks medical treatment for any injury by accident or repetitive trauma; 20 calendar days from the date such medical treatment is sought; or

    • If the employee no longer works for the employer against whom benefits are being sought, 10 calendar days after the employee’s last date of actual work for the employer.

  • Upon notification, the supervisor should meet with the employee and fill out the electronic Employer’s Report of Injury via the SSIF web portal at SSIF Claim Submission Portal

    Note:  This form must be completed in its entirety by management and submitted to the State Self Insurance Fund (SSIF) within 24 hours of the supervisor’s awareness of the injury.
