My Employer Has Denied My Claim, What Do I Do?

If the insurer denies benefits, the law says it must send you and the Workers` Compensation Board a denial notice. The notice tells how to file a written claim and how to ask for a hearing before the Workers` Compensation Board.

Within two years after the date the insurer files a notice denying your claim, you must file for a hearing before the Workers` Compensation Board. You will lose your right to the benefits denied in the notice if you do not ask for a hearing within the two years.

For more information about filing for a hearing before the Workers` Compensation Board, you can contact the Alaska Workers` Compensation Division at one of the addresses or phone numbers below.
