    Division of Workers' Compensation - Disability Evaluation Unit The Disability Evaluation Unit (DEU) determines permanent disability ratings by evaluating medical descriptions of physical and mental impairment. The determinations are used by workers' compensation administrative law judges, injured workers and insurance claims administrators to determine permanent disability benefits. The DEU prepares three types of ratings:

    Formal, done at the request of a workers' compensation judge
    Consultative, done on litigated cases at the request of an attorney or DWC information and assistance officer
    Summary, done on non-litigated cases at the request of a claims administrator or injured worker
