    Default Pre-Planned Vacation

    As long as restrictions are met, can a person go on a pre-planned vacation?

    You can go, but expect the IC to try to make a big deal about it later on.

    Why even tell the ins. co, just make sure you stick to your restrictions. If you tell the ins. co. prior to going on the vacation expect them to have a private investigator watching your every move.

    While no one can stop an IW from going any place they like... the underlying concept is, you claim you are "disabled" and unable to work due to your injury. The IC is paying wage replacement/disability benefits...you could see the TTD benefits adversely affected, if you were working, you'd use your vacation pay, or take unpaid leave. See the arguement?
    By taking the vacation, claiming TTD knowing you are not "disabled", the carrier may take a credit against any future benefits.

    In PA, accrued vacation and sick time are considered wages for work already performed, so there is no bar to receiving both TTD and vacation or sick time simultaneously.
