Workers compensation claims
While we hope you never experience a workplace injury, we want you to be prepared in the event you need to report a claim. If an employee is injured, your State Farm® agent can help with questions about workers compensation insurance or to start the claims process.
To help you with the claim process, a workers compensation claim kit is available to policyholders and agents. The claim kit contains important claims department contact information, instructions, and forms.
