Q: Hello, Is there a deadline for submitting mileage paperwork for California Workers Comp case?
A: There is no deadline as long as your case is open. Also, it is easier to get reimbursed for mileage the closer it is submitted to the actual appointment.
A: The only deadline is BEFORE the Judge issues an order approving a final settlement. Remember: mileage rates change each year. If you are adding up trips from 2017, you have to go get the 2017 form : https://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/forms-Mileage.html (if that link doesn't take you to Workers Comp forms, copy and paste it in your browser). DO NOT mix up trips for different years, or the adjuster won't re-write it for you and won't pay it.
