Supplemental job displacement benefits

Additional benefits may be available for injured workers who:

  • were injured on or after January 1, 2004,
  • have a permanent partial disability as a result of that injury, and
  • have not been offered other work by their employer.

The Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit (SJDB) comes in the form of a non-transferable voucher that can be used to pay for educational retraining or skill enhancement at state-approved or accredited schools.

If you qualify, you should receive the voucher form from the claims administrator. Review the frequently asked questions for more information.

  • After receiving the SJDB voucher, you may qualify for additional payments from the Return to Work Supplement Program. Read more here.

If you disagree with the claims administrator about the SJDB voucher, you have the following options to resolve your dispute:

  1. If you are represented by counsel, please contact your attorney for more information.
  2. If you are NOT represented by an attorney:
    1. If you have a case at the local Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, you will need to file a declaration of readiness to proceed (DOR) to request a conference before a judge (please see I&A guide 5 – How to file a declaration of readiness to proceed);
    2. If you DO NOT have a case at the local Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board, you will need to open a case by filing an application for adjudication of claim (please see I&A guide 4 – How to file an application for adjudication of claim).  Once you receive a case number, please file a declaration of readiness to proceed (DOR) to request a conference before a judge (please see I&A guide 5 – How to file a declaration of readiness to proceed).
