Supplemental Disability Benefits
If you have more than one job at the time you suffer an on-the-job injury, you may be eligible for supplemental disability benefits. If you are off work and losing money from both your jobs, you are entitled to be compensated for lost wages from both jobs. You must let the insurer know at the time you file your claim that you have more than one job/employer. It is the injured worker’s responsibility to provide the wage information needed in order for the insurer to calculate your benefits. The Workers’ Compensation Board recently said that a worker with a summer job, who was injured before the job started that year, was eligible for supplemental disability benefits because the worker had a continuing relationship with the summer employer during the summer season. An experienced attorney can help ensure that you receive all the benefits due on your injury claim.
