The revised DWC Form-042 Claim for Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits restructures the
form to increase readability, highlight additional required documentation, and revise the title to
Claim for Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits.
The all-new DWC Form-154 Workers’ Compensation Complaint form provides a simple,
standardized form for filing workers’ compensation complaints. The Division notes that a person
does not have to use the form and a complaint may also be submitted through its website, email, fax,
written correspondence, or even in person.
The form defines a complaint as a “written allegation that a system participant has violated Title 5,
Subtitle A, of the Texas Labor Code or Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’
Compensation (TDI-DWC) rules.”
