On Monday the Iowa Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) implemented an electronic filing system that is accessible to Iowans 24/7. Commissioner Cortese noted the efficiency and accessibility of the Workers’ Compensation Electronic System (WCES), which is now the mandatory filing system used by the DWC. As a result of the new system, the agency promulgated new rules. The WCES will be accessible to attorneys, workers, employees and insurers. Additional information on the WCES is available at ABI is interested in your feedback about the system and if improvements need to be made. Please contact Nicole Crain with any feedback or concerns about the WCES.
