Am I Eligible for Loss of Earning Power Benefits?
Sometimes when you return to work after an injury on the job, you can’t earn as much as you did before. Your doctor may say you need to stick to “light duty” work, or work for fewer hours. Your employer may move you to a position that pays less. When this happens, your workers’ compensation benefits can continue after you’re at work again—in the form of loss of earning power (LEP) benefits. See the requirements for getting LEP payments under the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) in this chart from the Bothwell & Hamill workers’ comp lawyers. Bothwell & Hamill helps people secure workers’ comp in Yakima, Kennewick, Sunnyside, Spokane, Richland, Ellensburg, Wenatchee, Walla Walla and all across Central Washington.
