Workers’ Compensation
 Workers’ Compensation 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.
 Workers’ Compensation also mandates the payment
of benefits to dependents in the case of work related
death.
 “No-fault” coverage
The University of Alaska
is self-insured for many
types of losses
 It is University funded
 Claims are handled through SW Risk Services
 All University stakeholders benefit when losses
are reduced or eliminated
