Electronic Filing (eFiling)
The Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court is pleased to announce its eFiling application. The benefits of eFiling include: convenient filing, available 24/7; automated email notification when filings are accepted/declined; filing dashboard provides filing status and history; detailed reconciliation for Automated Clearing House (ACH) transactions; similar look and feel to the Nebraska Trial Court eFiling app; and login credentials are the same as for the Nebraska Trial Court eFiling app.

NOTE: All Nebraska attorneys practicing in the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation court must be registered to eFile. Once registered, you are not required to eFile, but you will receive eService from opposing counsels who eFile.

Contact Nebraska.gov with technical support questions or call 800-747-8177.
Common technical topics Nebraska.gov can help with include:
“I can't get logged into the eFiling app . . .”
“I have a charge on my billing statement and I'm not sure what it's for . . .”
All pleadings can be eFiled, except pleadings or documents under court seal.
Exhibits to be offered at trial or a motion hearing will not be submitted through the eFiling system. These should be mailed or hand-delivered to the court.
eService is available through the NWCC eFiling system. The eFiling System will eServe all opposing attorneys registered for eFiling. Self-represented litigants must be separately served (i.e. mail, fax, email).
Appeals can be eFiled. The associated fees will also be submitted through an ACH transaction.
The NWCC eFiling system currently does not support eNotice. Orders, notices, correspondence, etc. from the Office of the Clerk of the Court will continue to be sent through the USPS.
“Like most people, I have a natural predisposition to avoid or postpone change. I do however believe we should strive to push past our comfort zones and in that spirit, our firm participated in the NWCC’s preliminary rollout of the eFiling system. It is simple, convenient, and user-friendly. The court’s receipt confirmation email goes out almost immediately and has so far been a suitable replacement for a date-stamped file copy. Even those most sincerely devoted to ‘doing it the old-fashioned way’ will appreciate how quickly and painlessly the new eFiling system can be mastered.”

“The 24/7 filing capability and electronic filing confirmation of the NWCC eFiling system have allowed us to serve our clients better.”

I found the eFiling system to be user friendly. I think having used the District Court eFiling system made for an easy transition to the NWCC system.”
