This notice must be served upon the Commissioner and *Employer by personal presentation or by registered or certified mail. For the protection of both
parties, the employer should note the date when this notice was received and the claimant should keep a copy of this notice with the date it was served.
* Persons employed by the State of Connecticut must also serve the employer by serving this notice upon the Commissioner of Administrative Services,
165 Capitol Avenue, Hartford, CT 06106.
* Persons employed by a municipality must also serve the employer by serving this notice upon the town clerk of the municipality in which he or she is employed.
WARNING: If an employer does not file a notice contesting liability (e.g. Form 43) for this claim OR begin making workers’ compensation benefit payments
“without prejudice” within 28 calendar days from the date when this claim is received by personal delivery or by registered or certified mail,
COMPENSABILITY SHALL BE PRESUMED and cannot thereafter be contested. If an employer chooses to begin making workers’
compensation benefit payments “without prejudice” within 28 calendar days from the date of receipt of this claim and still wishes to contest
this claim, it must do so by filing a notice contesting liability for this claim within one year from receipt of this claim. [See Sec. 31-294c(b).]

A 30C Form should be filed promptly after a work-related injury or illness takes place. There is a statute of limitation for filing workers’ compensation
claims: within one year of the date of an accidental injury or within three years from the first manifestation of a symptom of an occupational disease.
[NOTE: If, within the applicable time period described above, (1) there has been a hearing or a written request for a hearing or an assignment for a
hearing or (2) your employer’s insurance carrier has already signed a Voluntary Agreement, you do NOT need to file a 30C Form for the injury
or illness it covers.]
You Should File A 30C Form Because . . .
 There will be no doubt that you are claiming that you have a work-related injury or occupational disease.
 It is the best way to insure that you have met the statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
 A simple “accident report” filed with the employer is not an official claim for workers’ compensation.
 Your claim will be more likely to receive prompt attention from your employer or insurance carrier.
 Once your employer receives an official claim, they have only 28 calendar days in which to either deny your claim or to begin making workers’
compensation benefit payments “without prejudice.” If an official denial is not issued within 28 calendar days or if benefit payments are not
initiated within 28 calendar days, your employer must accept the compensability of your claim.

Directions for Completing the 30C Claim Form
Please pay close attention to these directions. Remember to Type or Print Neatly In Ink (except for signatures).
In filling out the 30C Form, please note the following:
1. In the “INJURED WORKER” box at the upper left side of the form, type or neatly print the name of the injured worker (If YOU are the
injured worker, print YOUR name here.). Also fill in the injured worker’s D.O.B. (date of birth), put a check in the box if the worker
is a minor (under the age of 18), and fill in the injured worker’s street address, town, state, zip code, and telephone number.
2. In the “EMPLOYER” box at the lower left side of the form, type or neatly print the name of the employer (“Name of employer” means the name
of the organization for which you work, NOT your boss or supervisor.) and its street address, town, state, zip code, and telephone number. Next
indicate (YES or NO) whether the injured worker’s injury occurred at the employer’s location just listed; if the injury took place at a location
other than that listed, fill in the location, street address, town, state, zip code, and telephone number where the injury actually occurred.
3. In the “INJURY” box at the upper right side of the form, type or neatly print the date of the injured worker’s injury and the town in which
the injury occurred (Note the city or town in which the injury actually occurred. This will not necessarily be the same location as the employer’s
business address!). Next indicate the part(s) of the worker’s body injured and how the injury occurred (In the blank space describe your injury
in simple terms. Indicate the part(s) of your body affected and the type(s) of injury. For example: “sprain to the right shoulder”, “amputation of the left
thumb”, “fracture of the right ankle”, “severe strain to lower back”, etc.). Lastly, indicate (YES or NO) whether the injury is an occupational
disease or a repetitive trauma, and check the appropriate box, if you have more than one employer.
4. In the “SIGNATURE OF INJURED WORKER OR REPRESENTATIVE” box at the lower right side of the form, sign your name and fill in
the date of your signature, if you are the injured worker. If you are NOT the injured worker, then sign your name, fill in the date of your
signature, and then type or neatly print your name, the name (if any) of your firm, your street address, town, state, zip code, and your
telephone number.
5. In the “WCC File #” box at the upper right side of the form (just below the “30C” number in the upper right corner), type or neatly print the WCC
File Number, ONLY IF YOU KNOW IT. In most instances, this number will be assigned to your claim by the Workers’ Compensation Commission
only after you send the 30C Form in, so it is okay to leave this one area of the form blank, if you are not absolutely sure of the number.
Once you have completed the 30C Form, follow these procedures:
6. Make two (2) extra copies of your completed 30C Form (this can be done at many quick-copy printers).
7. Send the original 30C to your employer* by Certified or Registered mail, return receipt requested. The claim may also be delivered in person
but if so, have the employer acknowledge in writing the receipt of the claim.
* State employees’ work-related injuries and illnesses are reported on Form PER-WC 207, entitled “Report of Occupational Injury or Disease to an
Employee”. If a State employee elects to file a 30C Form, then he or she must send the 30C Form to the Commissioner of Administrative Services, 165
Capitol Avenue, Hartford, CT 06106, NOT to the particular office where employed. (The Form PER-WC 207 is ONLY an accident report and is NOT
the official claim form for workers’ compensation benefits — State employees, like any other employees, must file a 30C Form in order to file an
official workers’ compensation claim.)
* Municipal employees, like any other employees, must also file a 30C Form in order to file an official workers’ compensation claim; if a municipal
employee elects to file a 30C Form, then he or she must send the 30C Form to the town clerk of the municipality in which he or she is employed.
8. Send a copy of the 30C to the appropriate Workers’ Compensation Commission District Office by Certified or Registered mail, return
receipt requested, or deliver by personal presentation. Addresses for all Workers’ Compensation Commission District Offices may be found in this
packet of material. The “District Office”refers to the number given to the District Workers’ Compensation Commission Office for the town in
which you were injured. Refer to the Connecticut map provided with the Form 30C for the number of the Compensation District for the town in
which you were injured.
9. Keep the remaining copy of the 30C for your own file.
