How to Obtain Workers’ Compensation Benefits in NJ

To secure workers’ compensation benefits in New Jersey, you are required to provide your employer with prompt notice of your work injury. Notice typically must be given within 14 days of sustaining a work injury to be eligible for workers’ comp benefits from the date of your injury. However, you must provide notice no later than 90 days after being injured on the job to remain eligible for workers’ compensation. 

You may give notice to your employer orally or in writing, although many employers (or their workers’ compensation insurers) have claim paperwork that you can fill out to formally notify your employer. However, notice can be provided to your manager or supervisor or any authority figure within your employer’s organization.

An employer who receives notice of an employee’s work injury must file a first report of injury with the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation. However, if your employer does not file with the Division, or if your employer denies your claim or reduces or terminates your benefits, you must file a written claim petition with the Division. A claim petition entitles you to a hearing with a workers’ compensation judge to either negotiate a resolution of your claim or obtain a binding ruling on your claim. A claim petition also allows you to obtain financial compensation for your permanent injury or disability.
