Workers' compensation credit against short-term and long-term disability benefits.

A workers' compensation carrier is allowed to take a credit against short-term and long-term disability benefits paid to a claimant. They are only allowed to take the credit based on the percentage of the premium they paid for the short-term or long-term disability plan. The carrier is also required to file a form called a WC-243 within ten days of a workers' comp hearing in order to take the credit. If you have questions about a credit the workers' comp carrier is attempting to take against your income benefits, contact Atlanta work injury attorney Brian H. Sumrall at (404) 857-3835 or visit
