    Default Wage Benefits Eligibility and Non-Consecutive Absences

    I was recently told that I can only be paid after missing 7 or more consecutive days in a row (which is fine) I have a Dr.s note for those days. My question is I missed about 9 days (not consecutively) before this, but after my injury date(I have Dr's note for these days also), they told me that I can't collect any WC pay for those 9 days even though it says on the WC Law for my state that "If the incapacityasts for 7 consecutive days or more, compensation is then computed from the date of injury." What does that mean. I'm confused?

    If the days missed are not consecutive, they do not meet the requirement that they be consecutive.

    Also burton0788babe, you can not count any days that you were off before your injury. What were you off work for those nine or so days before this? They will not count toward the minimum consecutive days IF they were prior to your injury.
