Suspnsion of benifits
I have been receiving worker's comp benifits for some time and have always cooperated with all job search efforts asked of me. The carrier has now filed a form 24 to temporarally suspend my benifits because I now require major surgery for an illness that may not be related to my original illness. The reason given is ''I am not able to participate in job search'' because of my current medical condition. Can this be legally done and approved by the NCIC? Should I retain a lawyer to protect my rights or is this process something I might handle? Is the carrier using this as an attempt to relieve itself of what is now a lenghtly claim spannning many years of benitfit payments?
