As of November 2021, there are already 1,925 U.S. Department of Labor medical benefits white card applications (and counting) in the system waiting to be processed ahead of yours. This delay is due to a U.S. government security upgrade to their computer systems.

Although there is an unavoidable delay, we’re here to help you get urgent information, navigate you existing claim, or help you start one.
