How does a WC-243 Request for Credit impact an Atlanta, GA workers' compensation claim?

In Georgia, a WC-243 allows an employer/insurer to reduce the amount of your workers’ compensation benefits based on a credit. Generally, an employer/insurer can take an offset against your weekly workers’ comp income benefits for a wage continuation plan such as short term disability benefits, long term disability benefits, or unemployment benefits. However, the amount of the credit often varies. If you have received a WC-243 and you have questions about your Georgia workplace injury claim, call Atlanta attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
