|OhioBWC - Common: Create e-account details
An e-account (user ID and password) allows you to access personal, secure information about your individual claim or policy. To do e-business with BWC, you should create an e-account.
Note: Your claim or policy number is different from your e-account. You must create an e-account on this Web site. While a BWC employee may ask you for your claim or policy number, NO BWC employee will ask for your e-account (user ID and password). Do not give your e-account to anyone.
Here is some additional information that will help you create and manage
Note: Injured workers cannot add secondary users to their e-accounts. However, they can authorize online designees to act on their behalf.
Note: If you already have a BWC authorized representative, you do not need to make them an online designee. BWC will automatically recognize that existing relationship. However you must create an e-account for yourself before your representative can access your information online. Then, representatives need to create their own e-accounts, and they will have access to information for the clients with which they are associated.
Legal authorized representatives
If BWC has not formally authorized your legal representative, you can still make them an online designee until BWC completes the authorization process. You can add or delete an online designee through this Web site. All designees must be registered with BWC first. Then you can add them to your e-account as an online designee, which gives them access to all of your secure information online.
Finally, if you dismiss your legal authorized representative, you must delete that representative as an online designee. Simply dismissing a representative in writing does not terminate access to secure information on our Web site. You must delete the online designee from your e-account to terminate online access.
