When you make a workers’ compensation claim, you not only get access to benefits but also an array of support services.
You should use these services to help you as you adjust to life after the injury, try to get back to work or simply need help with anything. The Workers’ Compensation Board explains support services can help with recovery and claim issues or questions.
Social services are available to help you with the toll an injury may take on you. You and your family can get assistance through these services with emotional or financial issues.
Advocate for Injured Workers
The Advocate for Injured Workers helps with claim questions or problems. You can contact the advocate to find out information about your claim or to get information about your rights. If you have an issue with your claim, the advocate can assist with that, too.
Return to Work
The Return to Work services can assist you as you work through recovery and getting back on the job. These services will provide you with resolving issues and taking the right steps to get a release to go back to work.

All of these support services work to help remove barriers and enable you to recover quickly. There is a service for almost any need. You are never alone within the workers’ compensation system as there is a service that can help.
