Notice of Election To Be Exempt

The Division of Workers' Compensation offers a Notice of Election to be Exempt system for individuals to apply for or renew a Certificate of Election to be Exempt electronically and, if the applicant is engaged in the construction industry, to submit electronic payment of the exemption fee. Payment can be submitted using Visa, Mastercard, or E-Check. The system is convenient and easy to use. If at any time you need assistance with the DWC Notice of Election to be Exempt system, you may contact the Division’s Customer Service Unit at (850) 413-1609 or email at wc_exemption@myfloridacfo.com.
