You walk out to your mailbox, open it and receive a letter. Looking at the letter, you see that it is from your Minnesota workers’ compensation insurance company. Curiously yet apprehensively, you open the letter. It is a Notice of Intent to Discontinue Benefits, also known as a NOID. Shocked, you set it down, find a chair, sit in it, wipe your brow, and ask yourself what does this mean?
The moment notice is given, the clock begins ticking for the discontinuance of your wage loss benefits. If you have an issue with the NOID, you must remember your time is limited. Generally, you have 12 days to file an objection, therefore finding a competent attorney to guide you through this process is paramount.
