Hi all. I need some help. I have been working for 25 years and I recently suffered from a Heart Attack. ( my first work comp claim in 25 years)Because of my profession this is covered by worker comp. So I am sure I will get coverage. But I am very scared of them retiring me. I had a friend, after suffering from the same, went to work only to get call up front and was told he now he was now medically retired. He didn't have a say at all.
If this happens to me how does it work? Will I lose all my retirement I payed into for 25 years and get a little piece of crap retirement check from State Comp? I only have 3 years before I actually retire with 85 to 90% of my pay.
Can some please explain this to me? Thank you.
