I have been asked many times by injured employees, “Can I move out of state? Will this affect my Minnesota workers’ compensation benefits?” The answer I always give my clients is it depends. And, it truly does depend on a number of factors, including the location of the move and the type of benefits involved. But, we can typically find a way to make the out-of-state move work while still protecting all of the injured workers’ benefits.
There are certain requirements, or pitfalls, that you have to be careful of when it comes to receiving the wage loss benefits, either the Temporary Total Disability or the Temporary Partial Disability.
