May 15, 2019 Newsline Update
From the article: "The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has updated its EAMS system to require validation of uniform assigned names (UANs) when users e-file documents. Filers will receive an error if the document contains a faulty UAN, so they can correct the issue immediately. The new procedure is expected to reduce errors and processing delays."
"The UAN, a uniform naming convention to ensure that parties are properly associated to cases in EAMS, is currently used by attorneys, claims administrators and lien claimants. E-filers may confirm or obtain their UAN by checking the database, or by submitting a registration request on letterhead with an authorized signature by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Emailed requests are processed and posted within 10 business days."
"The first document to require UAN validation is the application for adjudication of claim. DWC will update other e-forms in the coming months to include this upfront validation."
