Claim Information

ORM has purchased other insurance products to assist in covering exposures for travelers and Institutions for workers’ compensation and liability claims related to incidents abroad.

This is a mandatory coverage, required to be carried by the US government for any US entity contracting with the US government on work taking place in foreign lands. It is an extension of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act.

ORM placed an International Package Policy which includes foreign workers’ compensation, foreign business auto, foreign general liability, and a local Mexico general liability and tourista policy.

For claims related to any of these policies, all loss will be adjusted by AIG. However, claims are still to be called into the Institution’s WCI Representative and then the UT System WCI Claims Office in Austin. This document is meant to be a guide to provide assistance to you in the reporting and processing of claims.
