Workers’ Compensation attorneys win fight to get claimants direct deposit
If you collect workers’ compensation payments, there is now a quicker way to receive your money.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys have been fighting hard to reduce delayed payments to clients, and now New York State passed a law requiring all workers’ compensation insurance carriers to offer direct deposit of benefit checks. The Workers’ Compensation Board has given all carriers until July 1, 2021 to offer direct deposit to all claimants, allowing people to forego waiting on the mail for their check. Clients currently receiving benefits can be request direct deposit by submitting a request on the Election Form, which can be found on the Workers’ Compensation Board home page. This decision greatly helps our goal to always get our clients paid as quickly as possible. If you have any questions regarding your direct deposit or any workers’ compensation questions, please call us at 716-852-1888.
