Inglewood, CA asked in Workers' Compensation for California

Q: Will my bi-weekly PD benifit payments continue until I receive my settlement check (compromise release)?

The details of my compromise and release agreement are still being negotiated. I heard that it can take 30 days after approval from Judge to get the check. Just concerned about a temporary stop in payments while waiting for settlement check. Note: I was originally awarded a stiplulation but my employer cant accommodate my work restrictions. Now lawyer is working on compromise & release.... its still in negotiations.

A: If still in negotiations and you are entitled to PD (still not paid full amount of %) you will be paid. However once a judge approves it you will not receive any further payments until you receive full value of your settlement. However the person to answer questions would be your attorney that is why he is taking 15% of your settlement. Good Luck!
