Workers’ Compensation Records - General InformationWorkers’ Compensation Records
Worker's Compensation Claims Histories contain abbreviated information taken from two types of government documents: first reports of injury and court contested claims. The amount of information available varies from state to state.
Reports typically include:
• Date of incident
• Time lost
• Employer during the incident
• Type of injury
• Body part
• Job related disability
To Order a Workers’ Compensation Search:
Name and social security number are the minimum required to conduct a Workers’ Compensation search. Date of birth (DOB) gains access to more records.
These services automatically included with each report at no cost:
• Social Security Number Validation - checks social security number for validity and provides state and year(s) of issue on all reports.
• Fugitive Screen - When all three identifiers (name, social security and date of birth) are given for any type of search, within eight hours those identifiers are run through a national fugitive database. If that individual is wanted by any law enforcement authority, your information broker may be contacted by that authority (usually the next day). your information broker will provide information to the authorities as requested.
• Alpha Search - When date of birth is provided along with name and social security number during a Workers Compensation search, a second search automatically occurs. This search ignores social security number in order to find more records:
- When more than one social security number has been used by a claimant
- In case an error was made on the application form
- If an incorrect social security number entry was made at the state level during initial data capture.
