Manner of making an ACC claim

Lee M. made this Official Information request to Accident Compensation Corporation

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Accident Compensation Corporation should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Lee M.

Dear Accident Compensation Corporation,

Section 52(1) of the AC Act states that a person must lodge a claim "in a manner specified by the Corporation". Under the OIA can you please advise me what is the manner specified by the ACC, whether or not the manner is specified in any legislation, and if so what legislation specifies the manner.

Section 52 (3) of the AC Act states that the ACC "may impose reasonable requirements on the person, such as, for example, requring the person to lodge a written claim." Under the OIA can you please advise me what requirements the ACC impose on persons lodging ACC claims, whether or not the requirements are specified in any legislation, and if so what legislation specifies the requirements.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Lee M.
