Division of Workers' Compensation posts updated fact sheets for injured workers

The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) has posted updated fact sheets for injured workers on its website. The updated fact sheets provide injured workers with answers to frequently asked questions about issues affecting their benefits, and include changes mandated by Senate Bill 863.

“The fact sheets help injured workers and other parties understand the sometimes complicated process of workers’ compensation,” said DWC acting Administrative Director Destie Overpeck. “We have updated the fact sheets to reflect the changes made by SB 863.”

The fact sheets cover such topics as temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits, and medical care. They are available to employers and insurers who are required to comply with benefit notice regulations.

The updated fact sheets are available for immediate use in English and Spanish.
