The Division of Workers’ Compensation is the agency charged with the administration of the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Act (Act). The Act provides for the payment by employers or their insurance carriers of medical, disability and reemployment benefits to injured workers. The Division is required to administer the Act in a manner that is both fair and efficient to all parties. In addition to its administrative function, the Division also houses the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Board which hears disputes arising between employees and employers or their insurance carriers regarding the payment of benefits under the Act.
Workers’ Compensation in Alaska is a system which requires your employer to pay your medical costs and part of your lost wages if you are injured on the job. Alaska Workers’ Compensation also mandates the payment of benefits to dependents in the case of work related death.
