Re: Can You Get Lost Wage Benefits for Less Than 8 Missed Days
Since Michigan elected Snyder, the laws have changed, basically if you suffer a permanent, life changing injury - you're on your own.
See this thread
There is a seven day waiting period, pay starts on the eighth day.
Here's the rundown.
There is a seven-day waiting period to be eligible for wage-loss benefits. If your wage loss lasts longer than seven consecutive days (including weekends and holidays), you are entitled to benefits starting on the eighth day. If your wage loss continues for 14 days or longer, you are entitled to payment for that first week of disability. Weekly benefits are roughly 80 percent of your after-tax wages.
