Workers Insurance Overview

The Texas A&M University System Workers' Compensation Insurance (WCI) Program was created by the State of Texas to provide reasonable and necessary medical coverage and disability payments to employees who sustain injuries or occupational diseases while in the course and scope of their employment.

Eligibility

All employees whose names appear on the payroll of Tarleton are covered under the program at no personal expense. This coverage includes student and wage employees.

Worker Injury

On February 1, 2019, the process to report workers’ compensation injuries changed from the paper form for the First Report of Injury/Illness to an online electronic submission. Tarleton and all System members will utilize a new online portal, Origami, to report and record worker compensation injuries.
