Term Of The Day – Discontinuation Notice
A discontinuation notice is a very generic “old school” term for suspending or altering a benefit payment.
Temporary Total (TTD) suspension is the most common one.
Every state has some type of prescribed form for removing or altering/lowering benefits. The Workers Comp Commissions deem removing an injured employee from any type of benefit as a serious matter.
If an employer or an insurance company is going to reduce or discontinue an employee’s workers compensation benefits, an employee may be given a discontinuation notice. Your workers comp benefits may be reduced or discontinued due to new information relating to your case, or perhaps your injury has healed and benefits are no longer necessary.
