WebFile for Claimants

WebFile allows Claimants to view claim information and activity, verify which Claim Administrator is handling their claim, and file a Claim for Benefits and a Request for Hearing online. Click here to register for Claimant WebFile access.

Injured workers have a duty to disclose their current residential address to the Commission and to report any changes of address as they may occur. Failure by an injured worker to do so may adversely impact the injured worker's receipt of compensation benefits. Please call the Commission at 1-877-664-2566 for assistance with updating addresses.

To get started quickly, please review the WebFile Quick Start Guide for Claimants. For complete information about creating and managing a WebFile account, please review the WebFile Guide for Claimants.

To register for a Claimant WebFile account, go to the WebFile home page and click the “Claimant Registration” link at the top-right corner of the page to request a WebFile account. You will need your Jurisdiction Claim Number (JCN), Date of Injury, and PIN to associate your claim to your account. This information is mailed to you when the Commission receives notice of your injury. If you need assistance with this information, please call the Commission's Customer Contact Center toll free at 1-877-664-2566 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m., Monday - Friday, for assistance.

Claimant - Associate my Claim to my Account

The following information is required to associate a claim to a WebFile account:

  1. PIN - 5-digit Personal Identification Number
  2. Jurisdiction Claim Number - the Commission's claim number (NOT the Claim Administrator number)
  3. Last Name - Claimant's last name
  4. Injury Date - Date of injury reported to the Commission

All of this information is mailed to the Injured Worker as soon as the Commission is notified of their injury. The PIN is mailed separately from the Jurisdiction Claim Number.

Please note that all information must be entered EXACTLY as shown on the letters mailed from the Commission, even if the information appears to be incorrect. For example, the Claimant's last name may be misspelled or the date of injury may be off by a day. The information must still be entered exactly as it appears so it will match the Commission's system. The incorrect information may be corrected later by notifying the Commission.

For assistance with determining any of the information required to associate a claim, please call the Commission's Customer Contact Center toll free at 1-877-664-2566 from 8:30 a.m. - 4:45 p.m., Monday - Friday, for assistance with claim information.

Please review the WebFile Guide for Claim Administrators for complete information about creating and managing
WebFile accounts.

Your organization must first be set up to submit claims information to the Commission through EDI. Information about EDI can be found on the EDI Quality Assurance Department page of our website. If you need assistance establishing this trading partner relationship with the Commission, please contact edi.support@workcomp.virginia.gov or call the Commission at 1-877-664-2566 to request EDI Support. When your organization begins to submit claims to the Commission through EDI, you may establish a WebFile account to manage those claims by emailing the name of your organization, the name of the designated WebFile Site Administrator, and all FEINs used by the organization to file claims to WebFile.Support@workcomp.virginia.gov.

Claim Administrator - Adjuster Registration

You must contact your organization’s WebFile Site Administrator to request an account.

Claim Administrator - Missing Claims

To view a claim in WebFile the claim must be assigned to you within WebFile by a WebFile user within your organization who has the WebFile Manager role OR the claim must be unassigned in WebFile and you must have the WebFile Manager role.

Please contact your organization’s WebFile Site Administrator to verify the status of this claim (assigned or unassigned) and status of your role (Manager or not). If the claim is assigned to you or the claim is unassigned and you have the Manager role and you still cannot view the claim in WebFile, please complete a WebFile Support Request. Be sure to include the JCNs that you are unable to view in WebFile.

It is good practice for the WebFile Site Administrator to assign themselves the Manager role and add all of the organization's WebFile users to their Assigned Employees. This practice gives the Site Administrator the ability to see all of the organization’s claims and who they are assigned to, if assigned.
