Permanent Total Disability Section
The Permanent Total Disability (PT) Section is responsible for paying permanent total supplemental benefits to eligible permanently and totally disabled workers who were injured prior to July 1, 1984. The PT Section also verifies the accuracy and timeliness of permanent total and permanent total supplemental benefits due and paid by insurers. This includes verifying that payments are suspended, reduced, or cancelled based on statutory amendments or case law and that benefit offsets are correctly applied. Additionally, the PT Section relies on case law to ensure that the benefit payment amount is accurate.
