Director's Message

Darin A. Childers - WCA Director Welcome to the Workers' Compensation web site.

New Mexico is a great place to live and a great place to work and build a business. We at the Workers' Compensation Administration (WCA) are doing our best to ensure that New Mexico continues to grow and improve.

The Workers' Compensation Administration was created to assure the timely delivery of benefits to injured workers at a reasonable cost to employers. Workers' Compensation is a system of insurance that protects workers and employers from some of the losses caused by on-the-job accidents and job-related illnesses.

A key objective of the WCA is to educate employers and their workers on best practices for on-the-job safety and accident prevention in order to promote work place safety. Accident prevention is the key to protecting employees. But accidents do happen and should a disabling injury occur the workers' compensation system is designed to address the injured worker's immediate needs for medical care and benefits promptly.

If you have questions or cannot find what you are looking for please email our Web Administrator or contact us at: 1-800-255-7965.
