how long will workers comp pay me?
i live in the state of ga, and i have looked for this but couldnt find it. i just want to know how long will workers comp send me checks, if my dr doesn't send be back to work. I also want to know if the job terminates you after a year, i was told they terminate after a year by someone who works in the profit sharing/401-k department, but he didn't sound like he knew what he was talking about, so if anyone knows please respond.

RE: how long will workers comp pay me?
First it has nothing to do with the terminate of the job.

Some States will pay TTD checks for a certain amount of time.

Like here with me in Illinois, they paid for 4 years or better.

It depends on the state where you live/work at.

Georgia Temporary Total Benefits are payable up to 400 weeks as long as the doctor has you on a "no work" status. Statute 34-9-261: http://www.workerscompensation.com/regul...104&title=

RE: how long will workers comp pay me?
ok that makes me feel better on the comp pay. But the reason i am wondering about the termination, and still recieving benefits is i have money with the company that i cannot get while i am still employed. so if they r going to terminate me, can i still get workers comp, having been terminated? hopefully the guy who told me that i will be terminated after 1 year does not know what he is talking about, but if it is true i want to know can i stil be on workers comp?

RE: how long will workers comp pay me?
If you are terminated from your current job, you do not lose your comp benefits. The benefits follow the actual injury. Even if you are released to work and find employment elsewhere, you would still receive your medical. Your wage benefits would depend on your status (restrictions, MMI, etc) but that would apply even if you were still working for the original employer.

GA is a "at will employment" state and there is nothing that says the employer cannot terminate you. However, terminating you does not releive them of the obligations under your WC claim.
