Aynor, SC (WorkersCompensation.com) -- South Carolina rules spell out the way that payments must be made for temporary benefits and reimbursements. As is the case in many contexts, electronic systems are the go-to way to pay in the Palmetto State.

Periodic payments of temporary disability and reimbursements for expenses shall be made by electronic payment systems, subject to the following conditions:

(1) The employer, employer’s representative, or other payer must provide the claimant written or electronic notice of the method of electronic payment available and how to access it on or before the date compensation becomes due;

(2) If the claimant does not respond within seven (7) days of the date such notice is given the employer, employer’s representative, or other payer may provisionally issue payment in the form of a check. The check must be accompanied by written instructions for the claimant to commence payment electronically. If the claimant subsequently requests electronic payment, the employer, employer’s representative, or other payer must commence payment electronically; and

(3) A claimant may at any time elect in writing or electronically to receive such payments by check and the employer, employer’s representative, or other payer shall honor such request.
