Can an insurance company just stop paying workers' compensation checks?

When an injured worker in Georgia is receiving workers' compensation income benefits, the workers' comp carrier cannot arbitrarily decide to stop those benefits. Unless the 350 week cap has run on your case, the workers' comp insurance company can only stop your income benefits if you have actually returned to work or if your authorized treating physician releases you to normal duty work without restrictions. Further, when suspending workers' compensation benefits, the insurance company has to file a WC-2 and give the injured worker ten days notice when suspending based on a normal duty work release. If the workers' compensation carrier in your case has stopped your TTD benefits, contact Atlanta workers' compensation attorney Brian H. Sumrall to discuss your claim at (404) 857-3835, or visit
