    Your age plays into it due to the fact that they calculate your productive working years left, for example a 25 yr old with 40 percent is going to recieve much more then a 50 yr old with the same rating due to the fact that a 25 yr old is going to be more affected by the extra 25 yrs of not being able to perform due to the disibility.

    There are lots of issues to consider when faced with an offer to settle your case.
    Your age, your PD rating, you future medical needs, are you on SSDI?...etc
    So if you'd like to offer that info, maybe more help will follow...

    Keep in mind there is nothing "fair" in WC, only money. You're not really going to change anything in the system, so the only thing they can offer is "money"....this is from a site that I have posted before, but it rings pretty true and something to keep in mind.

    DEMANDING "JUSTICE": An old legal saying is "there is no justice, only money." Workers' compensation cannot change the way your employer manages its business or trains its supervisors. It cannot get your abusive supervisor or co-worker reprimanded or fired. It cannot make the workplace safer or the workload easier. The workers' compensation system cannot guarantee to restore your physical condition to what it was before your injury or get you a new occupation that pays as well as your previous job. Since the law cannot make an injured person whole, the only way to compensate the injury is with money. Insisting on going to trial when a reasonable settlement has been offered and recommended because you want "justice" will not necessarily increase your award, and may prejudice the judge against you.

    Don't take a lum sum settlement...
    Take the "life pension"... or better yet try to settle out for a Structured Settlement..you can read about them here http://www.medivest.com/index.html

    or do a web search using "structured settlement" and these funds are NOT taxable. This type of settlement is approved by the federal gov't for IW's...it provides a life time income stream.

    IF you take a lump sum payment, and deposit the money in an IRA, you WILL be taxed federal and state on the interest the money generates. And I would doubt you can manage to "live" on your SSDI/SSA, few can.
    The place you worked at has nothing to do with handling your money. BUT, keep the medical award money seperate if there is any.
