Help for New York Workers

NYSIF is here for you

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our New York communities, we want to reassure our claimants that NYSIF is taking the necessary steps to ensure that you continue to receive benefits as we continue our business operations remotely. We expect to remain fully operational and the management of your case to continue uninterrupted.

Access Your Claim Remotely
The best way to access your claim is to first access your NYSIF online account. You can enroll in direct deposit, view a summary of your claim, and obtain greater control of the claims process. If you are interested in discussing a monetary settlement of your workers' compensation claim, please contact your case manager or consult with your attorney if you are represented. If you need help finding your case manager, please visit our website and choose Get Claims Help.

Coronavirus-related Claims
For some initial guidance on coronavirus-related claims, NYSIF’s new COVID-19 page provides a helpful primer for workers’ compensation, disability benefits and paid family leave for businesses and workers. As the coronavirus continues its impact, NYSIF will be reaching out with further guidance.

The coronavirus pandemic is evolving quickly and NYSIF is committed to helping our claimants every step of the way. Check back frequently with our COVID-19 page at, which is being continually updated with all the latest information.

Thank you.
