CompFile Implementation


Law firm and attorney registration for CompFile, the IWCC's new e-filing system for managing workers' compensation cases, has begun!  To register, visit the CompFile web portal: https://iwcc.dynamics365portals.us/

Each law firm will designate one or more "Law Firm Administrators" who will manage that firm's overall account, and assist with registering the firm's attorneys. Solo practitioners will also designate an administrator, or can serve in that capacity themselves. Once the administrator sets up the firm, they will begin the process of getting attorney accounts set up. No special equipment or downloads are needed – CompFile is a cloud-based system, accessed via the internet. A current, updated version of Google Chrome will be a reliable way to access CompFile, but any modern web browser should work. Also, for maximum performance, ensure your computer's operating system is up to date.

How do I register for CompFile?
Please watch these instructional videos on the CompFile YouTube Channel to learn how to register for CompFile.
As a reminder, if you are an attorney who is not a Solo Practitioner or a Law Firm Administrator, your CompFile Law Firm Administrator will invite to register.
