To sign up for pre-authorized debit, log in or sign up for myWCB to register or fill out the debit authorization form and mail or fax it to us with a void cheque.

2. Visa Debit or Debit MasterCard

Make a payment directly from your bank account using Visa Debit or Debit MasterCard 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

5. Authorized Canadian financial institution

Electronic or telephone banking

You can pay your premium using your personal computer or telephone through an authorized financial institution, trust company or credit union in Canada. This option is set up directly with your bank—you just need to select Workers' Compensation Board – Alberta as the payee.

Payment via bank counters or ATM machines

You can pay your premium at any financial institution in Canada, but you must include the tear-off stub from the first page of your invoice.

Note: Please allow five business days for your payment to be applied to your WCB account.

6. Mail

A pre-addressed envelope is included with each invoice that has a balance owing. Enclose the tear-off stub from the first page of your invoice with your cheque or money order. If you do not have the invoice stub, please make sure your WCB account number is written on your cheque or money order. Please send your payment to our premium payments mailbox.

There is a minimum $200 premium charged on each WCB-Alberta account per calendar year.
