Grounds for Termination of Benefits
Your benefits may be terminated if:
- your employer or its insurance carrier denies your claim and gives notice that they are terminating any temporary compensation they have been paying you during the 90 days following your injury;
- a Termination Petition is filed, and after the presentation of evidence, a Workers’ Compensation judge orders that your benefits be terminated;
- you execute a Supplemental Agreement or an Agreement to Stop Workers’ Compensation, commonly referred to as a Final Receipt;
- the 500-week period of partial disability benefit status expires; or
- you retired employment and the insurance company alleges you withdrew from the workforce.
