Workers

Overview

The Worker's Compensation Act provides for payment of reasonable medical expenses and compensation for lost wages resulting from work-related injuries or disabilities.

These benefits are the responsibility of the self-insured employer or the employer's worker's compensation insurance carrier.

Important Note: If You Are Receiving BOTH Worker's Compensation Benefits And Social Security Disability Payments: An injured worker is required by law to notify the employer's worker's compensation insurance carrier (or self-insured employer) if receiving both worker's compensation benefits and Social Security Disability Payments.
