Employers can now file industrial insurance reports on the Internet

TUMWATER - Employers can now use the Internet to report and pay industrial insurance premiums to the Department of Labor & Industries.   About 160,000 employers report and pay industrial insurance to L&I each quarter.

"Employers in the pilot project found it was much easier to prepare and update their reports online," said Kathy Kimbel, manager of L&I's employer services program. "The electronic forms and automatic calculations also improve accuracy of the data."

Other benefits for employers who file their industrial insurance on the Internet include:

  • Having the option to pay with an electronic funds transfer or paper check. Employers who pay electronically can set the payment date any time up to the due date.

  • Being able to control who views accounts and makes transactions.  Employers can delegate actions ranging from reviewing to preparing reports to making payments.

  • Having Internet access to insurance rating information, past reports filed online, and other helpful information.

  • Being able to get help online, by E-mail or telephone 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

The new Internet system is called EXPRESS Filing.  To use it, employers must sign up for a digital certificate or a logon ID and password.  Then, they need to enroll their account and choose a payment method.
