Lump sum payments

We record data on lump sum payments made to injured workers by self-insured employers. The information you provide is entered into our database and is used:

  • for statistical purposes
  • as the basis for historical information (when requests are made for notification of previous lump sum amounts paid to a worker)
  • to reconcile payment data reported on individual claims.

Self-insured employers are required to notify us of any lump sum payment via their EDI data transmission.
