Oakland, CA – The Division of Workers’ Compensation’s (DWC) lien filing fee payment system has been updated as of March 2, 2013 so that JET Filers can pay the required filing fee and file their liens in one integrated process.
JET Filers who filed liens requiring payment of the filing fee between Jan. 1 and March 2, 2013 but did not pay the fee are reminded that Labor Code Section 4903.05(c)(2) provides that liens that are filed or lodged prior to payment of the required fee are deemed invalid.
DWC had previously advised JET Filers to file their liens and then use the public search tool to pay the filing fees. JET Filers who have filed liens between Jan. 1 and March 2, 2013 but failed to pay the fee are advised that the public search payment option for those liens will not be available after April 5, 2013 at 5 p.m. All lien claimants using JET File are now able to use the new integrated process.
JET Filers who have questions about the payment of lien filing fees should consult the DWC website.
