Understanding Your Payment

Watch for two envelopes

  • Your payment for services to workers or crime victims is mailed separately from the detailed explanation of your payment, called a remittance advice.
  • Please wait a few days for both pieces to arrive, before phoning L&I with questions.

Matching up a payment with a remittance advice

Your payment comes with a stub that includes the number of the L&I remittance advice and other important information. The illustration below shows you how to read the stub.

  1. RAN (L&I Remittance Advice Number). This is the number you need to match up a payment with its explanation.
  2. Warrant #. A warrant is L&I’s name for a check (there’s a technical difference, but it does not affect you). The warrant number can also help you match up the payment with the remittance advice.
  3. Your L&I provider number.
  4. Your NPI number, if we have one on record.

Get your remittance advice online

If an L&I payment arrives first and you don’t want to wait for the remittance advice to arrive in the mail, you can always find it online through L&I’s Provider Express Billing (PEB). By signing up for PEB, you will always know where to find your payment records.
