18 Apr What to Know About the Industrial Commission of Arizona and Filing Workers’ Compensation Claims
The Industrial Commission of Arizona (ICA)
When you go to the home page of the ICA, you will find important information available for your use. First, this is the website where you can file your workers’ compensation claim online. At the top, you will see contact information, including the name of the current claims manager. Contact this person’s office if you have a serious problem with filing your claim.
The current email is Claims@azica.gov. If you need to call, the number in Phoenix is (602) 542-4661 and the fax number is (602) 542-3373. There is also a link to click if you need the phone number for the ICA Divisions. You can select what you need on the uploaded page.
Underneath the contact information, you will find the current average monthly wage statutory at maximum payout. This year, 2022, the maximum payout is $5,161.12 a month. Even if you made $6,500 a month, you are still capped at $5,161.12. If you made $3,000 a month before you were injured and had to take time off to recover, then $3,000 a month is what will be figured in to calculate your monthly benefits.
Below this section, you will find the year-by-year accounting for how the monthly maximum is calculated to a certain amount by percentage in a downloadable pdf. For the Wages section, aside from the maximum monthly payout, the lowest wage is $12.80 per hour. Last year, it was $12.15. You can find listings for Public Notices regarding various meetings conducted throughout the year and a list of recent news.

There is also a section of videos for your attorney to review about uploading case documents, accessing a hearing calendar, and the online form submission link.
