Question:
How do I register for the Claims Online System?

Answer
The first step to gaining access to the Claims Online System is to become a registered user. For security purposes, there must be only one person in your organization who registers all of the users within your organization. This person will become your organization administrator.

When the organization administrator phones the WCB Technical Support Team to register your organization's users, they will need the name, phone number and email address of all the users they wish to register. The administrator will also be asked for:

  • the WCB account number
  • the last reported annual estimated payroll
  • the WCB industry code and corresponding rate

Your organization administrator will be asked if the user should have access to detailed claim information or be limited to accessing claim transactions (i.e. Downloads).

To register, phone the WCB Technical Support Team at 204-954-4321 Ext: 4573 (Winnipeg) or toll free at 1-855-954-4321 Ext. 4573. A WCB Technical Support Team Member will help you register all of the users for your organization.

Question:
What information can I access in Claims Online?

Answer:
The information you can access depends on whether you have full access or can only view the Downloads screen. Access is determined by your organization administrator.

Downloads access allows you to see workers' names, transaction dates, types of expenses, cost types, claim cost amounts and days paid.

If you have full access, you can view downloads as well as claim information. Claim information includes: claim adjudication status, whether a claim is open or closed, total costs by category, detailed claim cost information, and workers' personal information (address, date of birth, etc.). Please note that personal information is protected by federal and provincial legislation, and must not be shared or used for purposes other than managing workers' WCB claims.

Question:
How often do I have to change my password and how do I do it?

Answer:
For security purposes, you must change your password on your initial log on and every 12 months afterwards. You can also change your password anytime you want. Changing your password is a very simple process.

To change your password:

  1. Check the Change Password box on the Log On screen. (When you are required to change your password, the Change Password screen will automatically be displayed.) The Change your password screen will be displayed.
  2. In the Current Password field, enter your current password.
  3. In the New Password and Re-enter New Password fields, enter your new password. (If you have entered an invalid password, an error message is displayed at the top of the screen.)
