Support from Workers' Compensation Experts

WSDA Retro is more than a potential refund — it is also support from workers’ compensation experts who are available to all WSDA Retro-enrolled members if they ever have an L&I claim. WSDA has partnered with Employer Resources Northwest (ERNwest) to manage our group.

ERNwest is a Washington company that for the last 20 years has helped Retro members understand the program and implement best practices so they are poised to get great refunds.
