    Your pension plan document should contain the answer. As a general rule, pensions are vested benefits and you will not lose any due to work comp benefits. But that is the general rule and it may not apply in your case. You will need to see what it says about work comp, disability, or credits in the pension plan paperwork.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    I had surgery for carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve. I was called by my employer one week after my surgery and terminated because THEY HEARD that I was talking about another employee using curse words. I called and obtained an attorney. I completed the paperwork to receive my 401K benefits. Will this affect my workers compensation benefits because I did not receive my WC weekly benefit check this week?

    I am 52 years old and was terminated from my job one week after surgery. I took my 401K. Will this affect my worker's compensation weekly benefits?
