Understanding what an FROI (First Response of Injury) and SROI (Subsequent Response of Injury) report is can have a huge impact on when, and how, your company handles Workers Compensation claims. Here’s a quick breakdown to help differentiate the two.

FROI – A report prepared by the employer, or other parties, that describes the events and injuries. It is also known by other names, such as the Employer’s Report of Work-Related Accident/Occupational Disease.

SROI – A report required twice a year while a claim is open; when benefits start, stop, or change; when a lump-sum payment is made or when a claim closes.

Electronic state filings for these reports can be a big headache in Workers Compensation Claim administration. Requirements vary by state, and missing or invalid data leads to time consuming resubmission, filing delays, excess staff time, and fines.
