How do I get paid?

The WSCC offers three payment options:

  1. By cheque, mailed every two weeks;
  2. By cheque, for pick-up at our Yellowknife office; or
  3. By direct deposit into your bank account.

If you choose the direct deposit option, you must submit an encoded personalized cheque marked VOID, or your bank can complete a preauthorization form. Your branch can submit the completed preauthorization form to the WSCC. For auditing purposes, you must send an original cheque to our office for subsequent deposits.

For direct deposits, the initial transaction takes two business days for you to receive the payment into your account. The WSCC prefers this method of payment for all injured workers.
