Businesses and injured workers who use the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation’s automated phone system, 1-800-644-6292, will see security changes intended to better protect their sensitive information.
Beginning this week, callers will need more than just their policy or claim number. Injured workers will also be asked for the last four digits of their social security number and their date of injury. Businesses will be asked for their federal tax ID number (FEIN or SSN) and the ZIP code for the mailing address on the policy. 2/13/2017
