 WFMS Subscriber eNotice Information
The WFMS eNotice option allows eligible subscribers (currently Attorney) to choose to receive email notification of Commission Notices instead of receiving a paper copy via the U.S. Postal Service (USPS).  The Notice appears in the list for 60 days from Date Sent.  This service eliminates the waiting period for mailing/delivery of many common WCC Notices.  See below for current list of available WCC Notices.
eNotice can be activated only by the subscriber (Attorney) via the Notice Delivery selection on the User Profile page as noted below.

Any related eNotice inquiry not addressed on this page can be sent to us via email: websupport@wcc.state.md.us

June 2014 r
evisions to our eNotice service are substantial.  Instead of clicking through multiple emails and hyperlinks for each Notice we now provide a single daily email digest of all Commission claim-related notices and other documents in your claims.  The eNotice page provides a view of sixty (60) calendar days of all Notices in a sortable list with a Search option.  The list can be sorted any column heading to easily find just what you need.

The listing is accessed from the eNotice "service button" in the Attorney's button menu.  Note that those not subscribed to eNotice will have no content in the list and once selected you will see only notices sent from that date forward.

Email notification of activity in the eNotice listing is sent to all active subscribers (see the sample below) but you can also check the listing during any Online Services session. 


NOTE: eNotice does not replace the Certification of Service requirement that all parties in a claim must be served with copies of any Commission form by the submitting party

User profile

The option for eNotice is located on the USER PROFILE page for each eligible subscriber.  As with all Profile updates, the "Submit" button must be selected after a Notice Delivery status change. The Notice Delivery status can be reset by the subscriber at any time.  All notices are generated and dispatched, both printed and electronic, by WCC overnight data center processes.

Opting for eNotice means that your notices will not be sent in hardcopy; they will not be re-sent.  It is the responsibility of the subscriber to assure that their email address is correctly entered in their User Profile.  Please review the eNotice conditions and terms posted to the WFMS Terms of Use accepted by all subscribers.

eNotices are sent when the subscribed Attorney is a listed party in a claim.  If a party is not listed in the claim or the attorney has not entered their appearance, they will not receive any WCC Notice in hardcopy or electronic form.  Only Attorneys listed as parties (see Claim Inquiry) will receive the eNotice.

When WFMS Websupport is notified of a failed email delivery attempt we will reset the subscriber's Notice Delivery status to "U.S. Postal Service Only".  If no failed delivery notification is generated, we cannot determine the problem.

If you normally receive a email receipt for WebForms submissions and password resets, eNotice should work for you.  If you DO NOT receive an email confirmation when you submit a WebForm, your mail server or ISP may have settings that conflict with WFMS email messages; please contact us via websupport@wcc.state.md.us if you have concerns.

eNotice does not replace the Certification of Service requirement that all parties in a claim must be served with copies of any Commission form by the submitting party.

Email notification contains the WCC Claim Number, type of Notice and instructions as in the sample above.  The subscriber may access the document image via the single-use hyperlink contained in the email or login to WFMS to view the Notice via the document viewer as in a normal WFMS session.  The attorney can forward the information to any subscribed legal support staff (Attorney Proxy) to view the document from the claim document listing during a normal WFMS session, however the Attorney Proxy cannot use the hyperlink to access the document image as the link will prompt for the subscriber password.
