When must the workers’ compensation insurance company start my weekly benefits if I cannot work?

From the day the insurance doctor says you are temporarily disabled from work the insurance company has 21 days to start your benefits. A 15% penalty is attached when they take longer to do so.

Board Rules say that the insurer must also issue a WC-2 form and file it with the State Board as evidence that your weekly benefits have started, or what date and at what benefit rate. The WC-2 Form is not “set in stone” and can be changed if found to be incorrect at any point in the future.
