Structured Settlement

In some instances, an injured worker may elect to “settle” the financial benefits of their claim via a structured settlement. An injured worker must be at least 50 years of age, with a claim that has been open for at least 6 months. A structured settlement may be recommended if an injured worker has additional income, such as an employer or union provided pension, social security, or investment income, or wishes to return to part-time work. A structured settlement cannot limit an injured worker’s access to future medical treatment benefits.
