Administering of Benefits

In order for the City of Boston Workers' Compensation Service to provide adequate service, it is imperative that all work related injuries be reported as soon as possible, preferably the same day the injury occurred or within twenty-four hours of the occurrence or the day the Staff becomes aware of the injury. Prompt notification of an employee's injury will enable the Workers' Compensation Service to investigate the case thoroughly and expedite benefits to the employee. A decision on a case must be made within 14 days from Workers' Compensation Service receiving notice of injury. Therefore, in order for this Department to provide benefits, your cooperation in obtaining medical documentation is critical.
