Tennessee field offices and certain ODO technicians have the capability to obtain
electronic WC verification. To obtain information, an ODO technician should contact
their manager for referral to the proper technician.
Once you are certain the WC evidence is not already in the file, check the Workers'
Compensation (WC) Resource Page in DI 52140.020 since Tennessee is a State 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 Resource Page intranet site is a list of individuals
in the PC with online access to those individual State records.
Form SSA -1709 (Request for Workers’ Compensation/ Public Disability Benefit Information)
may be sent to:
Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development
220 French Landing Drive
The State will not reply unless you include a self-addressed postage-paid envelope.
