READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS & INSTALL FORMATTA FILLER
for Windows BEFORE
Current versions of Internet
Explorer are optimal; Google Chrome does not properly support Formatta Filler
for Windows used for our WebForms.
Subscribers must enable "session cookies" in their browser and include the MD
WCC "Domain" https://services.wcc.state.md.us in their "trusted sites" to allow
trusted access in their Internet browser. Web browsers other than current
Internet Explorer may have differing security settings.
To make the VR WebForms function easier, the
Screen includes the WCC Claim Data (Number) Search. You
cannot use the Public Claim Data Search when completing WCC VR
forms. Simply use the button on the new screen to access the VR
Claim Data Search function and toggle via the menu buttons back
to the Forms menu.
Access general instructions for Claim Data
Search from this Link.

All WFMS Online Services
inquiries and forms require that two identifying elements are provided in the
listed input fields. Generally the available choices are: WCC Claim Number,
Social Security number, date of birth (MM/DD/YYYY format) and surname.
Enter ONLY the first three (3) letters of the
last name. Remember that you are searching through structured
information and your search must match our data to provide a successful
result. The WCC Claim number + surname or Social Security number +
surname generally provide the best results.
Forms that require or indicate that
copies be sent to other parties are your responsibility to
print and mail to such parties. WebForms do not change
this requirement. The WCC will not send copies
of the form to the required parties.
You must enter a valid email address on the form. When ready to
"submit" the form to the WCC: verify the form information,
select "Submit". The results of a successful submission
will display the completed form with a "time stamp".
It will also send a confirmation receipt with
status information including the
date/time and success of failure of the form's entry when your email address
is correctly entered on the form.
Forms permitting attached files:
Select the form's "Attach" button. All documents/files attached
to a WCC form must be designated as "Secured" or "Unsecured". A
dialog box will display to define these terms. It is the
responsibility of the submitting party to provide a description of the attached
documentation as in the dialog box text. Once terms are accepted, a new "Attachments" dialog box will display
to allow you to browse to the files to be attached from your PC.
Name your attached file simply, without additional dots,
dashes or other symbols, e.g. Filename.pdf
You may attach as many files as necessary. When scanning a document for
attachment, make sure that the scan quality is readable, that
the image when added to a document (e.g. Word.doc) as an image
is FULL SIZE and not reduced to make the document unreadable. Scanning of documents requires some experience and
expertise to properly accomplish.
Do not attach a Formatta form (*.pff
file) to an online WebForm.
Do not mail or deliver a copy of the completed WebForm to the
Commission. It will not be accepted/processed.
File types accepted are MS
documents (Word - *.doc, *.docx), (Excel - .xls,
*.xlsx), PDF, JPG or GIF.
MS Word template files (*.dot) and web format
(*.htm), Outlook message (*.msg)
are not accepted.
Do not save a "copy" of a blank
or used online
WebForm (PFF file) to your PC for re-use.
The form must be selected from the WCC web page each time a
form is submitted. You can save a submitted form to print
or for your records.
Information requirements are the same as paper forms
submitted to the WCC. WebForms meet the same
legal requirements as printed forms. Required
fields are as determined by the WCC Support Services
Like most web-based forms, WebForms will
proceed through the available data input fields. As much
as possible, the form will pre-populate with the claim
data from the WCC claim database. As much as possible, the
input fields will validate the information you enter- if
selecting "yes" or "no" indicates you must explain or provide
more information, you cannot submit the form without input into
the "required" field. Each input field will display an
"information bubble" or tip when your cursor is in the field to
explain the information requirements.
WCC WebForms are selected from a list of available forms and
will require that the MD WCC Claim Number is input and the
appropriate form is selected. Filler will then launch the
form to be completed. If the wrong claim number is entered
and the claim information displayed is not the one desired,
close Filler and verify the Claim Number.
If you don't have the WCC Claim Number or the WCC Claim Number
you have is incorrect for your client, please use the Claim
Inquiry via the menu button above with the client Social
Security number and last name or contact a Commission Public
Service Representative via telephone to obtain the correct one
[(410) 864-5100 or Outside Baltimore Metro Area Toll Free,
1(800) 492-0479]. If you have a question regarding the
form's information, please contact the WCC Support
Services Division at the telephone number(s) given via the
Vocational Rehabilitation menu above. If you have a
question regarding how to use Formatta Filler, please use the
built-in HELP utility. If you experience a problem with
the WebForm or submission, please email
