There are four steps to the claims process:

If you get injured at work, the claims process helps determine your benefits. 
These benefits may include:

  • compensation for lost wages while you recover from a work injury;
  • medical care and other non-financial benefits;
  • permanent disability awards, like a pension;
  • return to work services, and
  • reimbursement for prescriptions and out-of-pocket expenses
