Hello, as I am new here I would like to ask the following question.
According to the Prospective applicant for a reserve peace officer in the state of OK, it requires me to carry workers compensation insurance. Does anyone know anything or a web link maybe that will tell me what this is?
Thanks in advance for your help on this.

I believe it' an insurance that covers if you get hurt of sick, you'll still get a pay check.

It's in case you suffer a work related injury. Your medical expenses will be billed to the insurance. I've never heard of an individual having to provide this though. Usually the agency is responsible.

Are you talking about supplemental short/long term disability insurance?

GTS197 & Chartoto: I briefly looked up what workers comp ins. is. According to the wikipedia.org encyclopedia its an insurance whose schemes can differ between jurisdictions and compensates employees injured at place of employment. It can compensate for weekly wages (functioning as a form of disability insurance), for economic loss (past and future), reimbursement or payment of medical and like expenses (functioning as health insurance), general damages for pain and suffering, and benefits payable to dependents(functioning as life insurance).

Chartoto: Try doing a web search using just the word "insurance". There are directories for insurance companies under that. I would think your employer would offer a better deal though. You should ask them just what's covered under their plan so you can get additional coverage not included if you need to.

Normally an agency has insurance that coveres any on-duty injuries suffered by an officer.

Just like most companies have insurance in case one of their employees get injured at work

I have never heard of such a thing. You should first of all find out EXACTLY what they are requiring. Workmen's Comp is usually the responsibility of the employer not the employee. The other thing that you can do is call the Oklahoma Insurance Department which is a state agency that will give you much more accurate information.
