Benefits Administration

The Idaho Industrial Commission receives reports of every workplace injury requiring more than basic first aid . The Commission’s Benefits Department receives and maintains each of those workplace injury reports.

Benefits Administration Analysts work with injured workers, employers, insurance companies, adjusters, and health care providers. They send adjuster information to injured workers when the Commission receives injury reports. Our analysts work to clarify rules with direct help and training . The Commission developed a four-day course to certify workers’ compensation professionals.
