What to Do When an Employee Is Injured

If one of your workers is injured, you have three methods to submit a claim:

Step 1: Document

Step 2: Report

If this is the first time you are reporting a claim and you would like to be able to report claims on-line, you will need to register for access to our claims system by submitting the form at the right of this page. 

Please note that access is limited to one person per ALMA member and due to the sensitive nature of the data available in this system we must first verify all requests before approval. 

Step 3: Submit

  • Longshore: As of July 21, 2017, you only need to submit the LS-202 form to AEU (as soon as possible but no later than seven days following the accident). AEU will then submit that form directly to the Department of Labor the following business day.
  • State Act: Please refer to your state workers’ compensation notice for specific state rules. State laws can vary. Please check with your AEU Claims Specialist for First Report of Injury filing instructions. 

Please note the U.S. Department of Labor, along with all state workers’ compensation departments (where applicable), have required timeframes for reporting lost-time claims or a penalty may be imposed. It is the employer’s responsibility to report these claims to AEU by the stated deadline. The employer is still responsible for any late submission fines. Submitting the LS-202 to AEU promptly ensures timely submission to the DOL.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your USL&H or State Act claim, please call the AEU claims department at 888.285.2562.
