    Default Can I Quit My Job While Receiving Workers Comp Benefits

    i got hurt back in december i have been thrown from doctor to doctor and have gotten know where i been off work for six months. ihad to move from wv (where i got hurt at work) back to pennsylvania because i couldnt afford my place i was staying at because my pays from workers comp where so low. Work had not let me work with restrictions and now they have decided that they will let me this is after six months of being off. i am not able to go down there to work now because i have no where to stay. can i quit my job? will they make me pay money back if i do quit? how do i go about quitting once they let me do the light duty? i am goin to be transfering my care to pennsylvian after my next appt on wed. i already have a doctor that will take me. i understand that if i quit i will not get a check which is fine i have found a job that has come into place with my current work restrictions. please help :/

    Comp is not health insurance; the employer is covered not you.
    Your claim an d benefits remain whether you quit or not.

    That's ridiculous and you know it.

    You must accept all work offered within your restrictions.
    If you quit your job, you forfeit wage loss benefits and retain medical.
