In Minnesota, when a worker is injured in the course and scope of their employment, they could be entitled to benefits under the Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Act. This can include medical care, along with wage loss benefits.
When a worker has an admitted work comp claim, to end these benefits including wage loss, an insurance company will need to give written notice to the injured employee, they often do this by filing what is referred to as a Notice of Intent to Discontinue benefits, or a NOID.
Once an injured worker receives this notice, they often only have twelve days to object, otherwise their benefits will end. If an injured worker receives this notice and does not believe the end to these benefits is appropriate, or if they have questions or concerns about other benefits that may be affected, they should reach out to a workers’ compensation lawyer who specializes in the area.
