The Division recently updated the DWC Form-042 (Beneficiary Claim for Death Benefits) to include a notice in Spanish providing instruction on how to contact DWC regarding questions about the form or claims and how to locate the Spanish version of the DWC Form-042 on the Texas Department of Insurance website.  Due to this revision, Carriers will need to update any automated notification systems currently in place, as well as any additional communication notices sent to potential claim beneficiaries, to reflect this change.
