IB's
I have been sent a check for IB's. What does that mean? I am still in pain. Does this mean my case is closed and will always be in pain? What if it gets worse? Should I cash the check? I've been told many things by many peoople, maybe someone who has been through this can clarify.

Thanks

RE: IB's
each state has there own system, rules, and benefits. without knowing yours it's difficult to answer. Texas uses similar terms; They call them IIBs.
is that where your claim is?

RE: IB's
Impairment benefits are not based on pain but on disability.

"Impairment benefits: Once your doctor says you are at Maximum Medical Improvement, you are as good as he or she expects you to get. At this point your doctor should evaluate you for:
Possible permanent work restrictions and, A permanent impairment rating. If you receive a permanent impairment rating, you will receive money based on that rating."
The Employee Assistance and Ombudsman Office (EAO) will assist you at no cost with questions or concerns you may have about your workers’ compensation claim.

EAO works on your behalf to resolve issues with your workers’ compensation claim.

EAO offices are located around the state to assist you.
