    Exclamation Re: workerscomp penna state please help

    Welcome stirfry, and Thank You for Serving Your Community in such a Dangerous manner! I'm from Pa. also, and they can't stop your checks arbitrarily without proper notification. And I'm sorry to say that them stopping payment doesn't mean they are going to settle, that Process takes a Compromise and Release Agreement between you and the i/c, approved by a Judge. I had my check late a couple of times due to the i/c being in the Mid-West, and weather causing a slow down, I'm also sorry to say they can be up to 29 days late in Pa. before you can Petitions for Penalties. Have you received any Paperwork lately from the State BWC or the i/c stating either "Notice of Petition for Superceadeus" or "Notice of Availability to Return to Work"? Those are two ways to Stop your Checks if they were received by you or your Attorney and not acted upon, otherwise they cannot stop your checks without Penalty just on a whim. Get back in touch with Your Attorney and MAKE them get on the Ball and get you your check!! It's their job to Help you when things go wrong, they work for you, and a few simple calls from them can get you your answers!! Best of Luck, and let us know how it goes!!
