L&I has limited capacity to respond to phone calls due to the coronavirus outbreak response. It may take longer than normal to return phone calls and other communications. We encourage you to access our online services. If you have difficulty reaching an L&I claim manager, please contact us through L&I’s Claim & Account Center.
Our online Claim & Account Center gives you fast access to your claim file, secure messaging with your claim manager, and more.
Note that online claim files for self-insured employers have limited information available. Contact your self-insured employer for a complete copy of your file.

Calling your claim manager
Every claim managed by L&I is assigned a claim manager, and there are times when you might need to speak with your claim manager directly. Your claim manager's phone number is located on all correspondence. You may also contact your local L&I office and ask for a phone referral. Your claim manager should call you within 48 hours.
Keep your information updated
- Mailing address changes: Please let us know right away, so your claim isn't delayed. Address changes at L&I must be made in writing via fax or mail and include your claim number and authorizing signature. You can also update your information in the Claim & Account Center. If your employer is self‑insured, send a written notification to both L&I and your employer or their third-party administrator (TPA).
- Doctor changes: Let us know online using Claim & Account Center or use the Transfer of Care form (F245‑037‑000).
Authorizing someone else to access your claim info
Complete the Authorization to Release Claim Information form (F101‑010‑000), sign it, and mail to your claim manager.
For online access, authorized delegates will need to complete their own registration for the Claim & Account Center as an Authorized Delegate and request access to your information. You will then be notified by email and you will need to log onto the Claim & Account Center and click on 'My Profile' to act on their request. They won't get access until you approve them.
