If you were injured at work and are receiving workers’ compensation benefits, you know how tough it was to get approved. The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) is strict when reviewing and approving claims to help reduce fraud and ensure that only eligible injured workers get these important benefits.
Because of the difficult nature of getting benefits—and their importance to your family’s financial situation—you definitely don’t want to lose them under any circumstances until you are entirely recovered and ready to go back to work.
But what happens if you need to move to another state, especially knowing that workers’ compensation is not a federal program but rather a state-run program? Are your benefits lost if your address is no longer an Ohio one? Our blog covers what happens in this situation.
There are many reasons why you might need to move out of Ohio. Thankfully, the BWC has provisions for people who are already receiving workers’ compensation benefits and who need to move to other states, and it allows those people to continue receiving their benefits.
However, there are a few important steps you need to take if you move out of state in order to continue receiving benefits.
Workers’ compensation applications are never something to take lightly. If you’re applying for the first time, getting approved quickly and easily can be a big relief for your entire family. And if you’ve already applied and were denied, getting your appeal approved can also take a lot of financial stress off your shoulders.
At Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, our Ohio workers’ compensation lawyers want to help you with your claim, whether you’re applying for the first time, appealing the BWC’s decision, or even ensuring your benefits don’t get canceled due to a move, job change, or other change in life circumstances.
