What is a WC-243 Request for Credit and how does it impact a Georgia Workers' Compensation Claim?

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 Atlanta workplace injury claim, call Atlanta workers' compensation attorney Brian Sumrall at (404) 857-3835.
