Carriers are the best source of information.
Once you are certain the WC evidence is not already in file, check the Workers' Compensation
(WC) Resource page in DI 52140.020 to see if that State is one that provides SSA with access to its online records.
The value of online records can vary from State to State and some development may
still be required. However, the sites available usually provide contact information
for the employer, WC carrier or the WC attorney, which can jump-start the development
process. Also included in the WC resources intranet site is a list of individuals
in the PC with online access to those individual State records.
WC records are maintained by the Kansas Workers Compensation Court. However, as their
Division of WC does not require carriers to provide records of periodic payments,
only limited payment information is available. Their records do contain information
regarding the employer and carrier. Designated personnel in ODO, MAMPSC, and Kansas
FOs have access to these records.
