Pending Workers' Compensation Claims Information

What is the status of my claim?

Processing and payment of covered workers’ compensation claims are being handled by the Florida Workers’ Compensation Insurance Guaranty Association (you are leaving the DFS website and opening a new browser window) ("FWCIGA").

If you need the status of your claim, please call or write to United Self Insured Services at the following address:

United Self Insured Services
PO Box 616648
Orlando, FL 32861-6648
Phone: (800) 444-9098 ext. 531
Fax: (407) 373-6497

United Self Insured Services ("USIS") is the third party administrator that will be handling claims on behalf of FWCIGA.

An e-mail can also be sent to USIS at fcic.claims@usis-tpa.com.

If I previously reported my claim to First Commercial, must I start over with FWCIGA?

No. FWCIGA has access to the company claim files and will handle your claim.

There is a lawsuit being brought against me for bills that First Commercial should have paid. What should I do?

You should contact USIS immediately at (800) 444-9098 ext. 353.  Just as the insurance company would have done if it were still solvent, FWCIGA will determine if you are entitled to receive legal defense.

Should I send you additional bills or information regarding a pending claim with First Commercial?

Yes. Please send all documentation regarding a pending claim to:

Florida Workers' Compensation Insurance Guaranty Association, Inc.
c/o United Self Insured Services
PO Box 616648
Orlando, FL 32861-6648
Phone: (800) 444-9098 ext. 531
Fax: (407) 373-6497

Please be sure to reference your claim number on all correspondence.

Do I need to submit a proof of claim form to the Receiver in order to have FWCIGA make payments on my loss claim?

No. FWCIGA has access to the company claim files and will review your claim to determine if it is a covered claim on which payments may be due.

However, if you are uncertain that your claim is covered by FWCIGA and/or you wish to make a claim directly against the First Commercial receivership estate, you must submit a proof of claim form to the Receiver. The Receiver previously mailed proof of claim forms to all known claimants and the claim filing deadline of August 17, 2010 has passed.
