Workers' Compensation Insurance

Workers' Compensation is a special form of insurance provided to all university employees who are injured while in the course and scope of employment. When an employee is injured on the job, workers' compensation benefits are intended to cover the cost of all necessary medical treatment associated with the injury, and to pay the employee for lost work time. These benefits are regulated by state law and administered by the Arizona Department of Administration, Risk Management Division.


RMS has established a secure online system (WebConnect) for supervisors to report workplace injuries involving their employees and to start the workers' compensation claims process. Detailed instructions for making an online report and additional information are provided within the above links.


The information on this website is designed to provide only basic guidance about the claims process. For detailed questions, contact Belen Aranda, Workers' Compensation Program Coordinator in RMS at (520) 621-3626 or email: baa@email.arizona.edu.
If Belen is unavailable, please call the Risk Management Services front desk at (520) 621-1790 and we will find someone to assist you.
