JET File

JET File allows electronic filing of multiple "forms" and attachments in a single transmission by secure file transfer protocol (SFTP). It is currently limited to the following six forms:

  • Application for adjudication of claim
  • Declaration of readiness to proceed (to hearing)
  • Declaration of readiness to proceed (to expedited trial)
  • Compromise and release
  • Stipulations with request for award
  • Notice and request for allowance of lien.

About JET File

JET File uses a secure Internet connection that allows filers to transmit data and attachments to State of California servers, where it is picked up by DWC and deposited into EAMS. JET Filers have three ways to use this service. Filers can:

  1. Purchase software from an approved vendor that allows them to JET File directly, or
  2. Use a third party filer to transmit on their behalf, or
  3. Build their own transmission process using the technical specifications published by DWC.
