They have a form for you to fill out. You can lose your benefits if you do not do this.. CC


You can move wherever you'd like. In a worker's compensation claim filing in which the employee resides in one state, was injured in another state, and is employed by a firm in yet another state, the employee can select which state's benefits are most generous. I was hired in Illinois, work in Wisconsin, and get injured in Michigan. Say Michigan has the best worker's compensation benefits, I can then select to file claim to Michigan standards, and the employer would be statutorily required to compensate the prescribed benefits.

In common law, this is called 'Choice of Law.'

Check with your the state in which you are receiving benefits Department of Labor...Workforce Development...and you'll eventually find your way to the Worker's Compensation Department- they will be able to answer your questions better than any one on here.
