  8. L&I Loss of Earning Power Benefits (LEP)

    While your claim is open, if you perform part-time or light-duty work for less pay than you made at the job you were injured on, it may be to your advantage to collect LEP benefits. These are money benefits that, in part, make up the difference between the pay rates of your current and previous jobs. More Information on LEP.

  11. Reopening Your L&I Claim

    After your claim is closed by final order, if your medical condition worsens and requires additional medical attention, you may apply to Reopen Your Claim. Once reopened for medical treatment, it is reopened for all purposes and benefits.

  12. Third Party Claim Rights
