Electronic Document Filing Portal

Electronic Document Filing Portal

EDFP is the North Carolina Industrial Commission's Electronic Document Filing Portal.

Notice Regarding Electronic Document Filing Requirements

Until further notice, the Commission will continue to accept the filing of all documents consistent with the versions of Rule 11 NCAC 23A .0108 (for workers’ compensation claims) and Rule 11 NCAC 23B .0104 (for State tort claims) that were in effect through February 28, 2021. These versions are available by clicking below:

Pay Invoice Online

Invoices received from the Industrial Commission which are associated with an IC File Number may be paid online via Credit Card (MasterCard or VISA) or e-Check. At this time, invoices which are not associated with an IC File Number (for example, payment for a Safety Education service) cannot be paid online.

Upload Documents

Pursuant to Rule 11 NCAC 23A .0108 (the Rule), the Electronic Document Filing Portal (EDFP) is the exclusive means by which those required by the Rule shall submit specific Industrial Commission documents, forms and associated attachments which are capable of being accepted electronically.

Some of these documents (such as Compromise Settlement Agreements) require a prepaid filing fee, so this portal also accepts payment for those documents via Certification of Payment, Credit Card (MasterCard or VISA) or e-Check.

Registration is required for access to EDFP. Registration instructions are available here.

After completing registration, login to begin the document upload process.

EDFP is unavailable Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and Sunday mornings until noon.

Assistance with EDFP can be obtained by visiting the Training Page, calling 919-807-2695, or e-mailing


How to Request an Electronic Filing Waiver

For entities subject to the electronic filing requirement (self-insured employers, attorneys, carriers, third-party administrators) a request for an emergency technical waiver of the electronic filing requirement due to lack of electronic mail or internet access may be submitted via facsimile, U.S. Mail, or hand delivery along with the documents to be filed.
