Dear IW's , Does anyone know how far back in time that the NYWCB keeps case records? . I had a case , over 21 years ago , that was closed after surgey , healing & returning to my work , untill my present WCB case was opened . I do recall something about the State Insurance Fund having to take care of any future medical ( Pertaining to that specific case ) , for 18 years ? I testified truthfully to the ALJ about this , but I simply cannot remember everything , & I do not have any records either . Any answers or opinions will be appreciated !
