how to ask for a partial advancement
#1
Hi everyone, new to all of this. I would like to know how to write to the state of wi for a partial advancement on a ppd rating settlement. I was injured at work, had bilateral carpal tunnel surgery. Wc has paid everything mileage, paid while recovering, pt, follow up dr visits etc. I was laid off by employer in Dec 2014. As a result I have used up all my savings because unemployment didn't rly pay much for the last 8 months. I would like to know what is considered a financial hardship for an advancement for wc in wisconsin? I will be starting a new job in a few weeks, but I have no money now because unemployment has run out. I have one dependant and also my car is in need of repairs and have rent to pay. Would these be considered a hardship? Any help would be great! Thanks

I doubt they will make an advance payment if they are going to dispute your rating or are planing on having you seen by another physician for a second opinion on your rating.

once your disability rating is fixed and awarded by the state then you may request the comp court to allow a lump sum payment of part or all of the periodic payments.

have you discussed your rating and disability with the carrier/employer/adjuster?
do you know how much you want advanced?
do you know if the carrier will dispute the rating or obtain another rating report?
do you want to do a lump sum settlement of any future benefits?

the carrier may want a written settlement or stipulation agreement before advancing any funds.

you can also contact DWD for general information

Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
