Procedural Rule 2.17 Report of Payment and Settlement Receipt.

Employer or carrier's filing of a Form B-31 shall constitute compliance with the requirements of Miss. Code Ann. Section71-3-37(7). Claimant, or Claimant's counsel shall be provided a copy of the Form B-31 in any manner which acknowledges delivery of the B-31. Claimant's signature is not required on the Form B-31, but the presence of Claimant's signature will constitute acknowledged delivery of the B-31 to Claimant. The filing of the Form B-31 with the Commission will start the running of the one-year statute of limitation under Miss. Code Ann. Section 71-3-53. If the original or any subsequent Form B-31 filed with the Commission does not furnish all medical or other information required, Employer or Carrier shall file another Form B-31 containing complete information as soon as possible per Section 71-3-37, and following the above notice requirements.

This Rule shall be in force and effect on and after January 18, 2018.
