Age does affect some workers’ compensation (LNI) settlements, but not others. The type of settlement is an important factor in determining whether your age is important.

Permanent partial disability settlements (PPD) are not affected by age. PPD settlements are a function of physical or mental impairment caused by your injury. At claim closing a medical examination is performed to determine the amount of impairment. More about permanent partial disability at PPD.

Pension Settlements are affected by age. Pension settlements are based on an inability to work or be retrained at any job. Because age affects ability to work or be retrained, age affects an L&I pension settlement. Older persons are more likely to be eligible for a pension than are younger persons. More information here at Pension.

CRSA settlements are affected by age. An eligibility requirement for CRSA is that you be at least 50 years old. A CRSA settlement is a quick way to settle an L&I claim for a lump sum of money. Be careful, a CRSA is not always the best way to settle. More details here at CRSA.
