After the claim against the Second Injury Fund is resolved, either by an approved settlement, or based upon a Final Award entered by an administrative law judge, the Division will requisition the payments. Payments for medical bills may go directly to the medical providers or to the employee and his/ her attorney in uninsured employer cases. All attorney’s fees and applicable liens are deducted prior to the final payment being made in the case. Direct deposit is an option available to persons receiving ongoing weekly benefits.
If you have a question as to the status of your payment from the Second Injury Fund, call 800-775-2667 and ask for a Second Injury Fund Technician.
