Re: Re-Employment Settelment
That money is approved for re-training (vocational rehab) only, it's paid directly to the school that you're attending as services are provided.
Any money not used for re-training stays with the carrier, that's not your money and it's not paid to you.
They're not going to cash you out for the re-training, let you sit back and do nothing, then collect benefits indefinitely.
The goal is to re-train you so you can get another job, thus reducing the value of your claim or eliminate the wage loss side completely.
Any settlement will be for a fraction of the total value of your claim - it has to be to their gain or no deal.
If they do settle, it will be for the wage loss and medical side of your claim only.
They sure won't settle the re-training part, in fact they will probably demand you cooperate or cut your benefits.
