Uniform assigned names (UAN)

Uniform assigned names are created and assigned by the DWC to associate related parties to their cases. Currently only claims administrators or representatives in a case are given uniform assigned names. However, anyone filing a form in EAMS—be they an injured worker, a claims administrator, an attorney, a lien claimant or other—will need to use the uniform assigned name to identify the claims administrator or representative in the case for which they are filing.

  • Search for a claims administrators’ UAN
  • Search for a representatives’ UAN
  • How to get a UAN :
    • You must be a claims administrator or a representative
    • You must register with the Central Registration Unit (CRU). Send your request and preferred method of service (email, U.S. mail or fax) on letterhead with an authorized signature by email to cru@dir.ca.gov or fax to (888) 822-9309.
    • The new assigned name or information will be posted within 10 business days of receipt of the request.
    • After receiving your UAN, please inform the CRU of new offices and changes of name, location, mailing address, telephone, e-mail, fax, or preferred method of service.
