WCC File #: _______________________________ Workers' Compensation Commission: STIPULATION AND WHAT IT MEANS
A stipulation is a full and final settlement of your case. Once it is approved by the Commissioner, your case is closed. You cannot recover any further benefits from this employer for this injury. Acceptance of this settlement means that you are waiving your rights to a formal hearing, which is a trial, regarding any issues that your employer or the insurance company may be disputing. By accepting this stipulation, you give up your rights to any future medical, disability, or loss of income benefits to which you might be entitled. Those benefits include: 1. Payment of all future medical bills you might incur for services related to this injury; 2. Future periods of temporary total and/or temporary partial benefits to which you may be entitled as a consequence of this injury; 3. A specific indemnity award for your permanent partial disability, if any; 4. Additional specific indemnity benefits should your permanent partial disability worsen over time as a result of the natural degeneration of your condition; 5. Additional lost earnings benefits under Section 31-308a if at the end of a specific indemnity award you are unable to earn equivalent wages; 6. Group health insurance under Section 31-284b. (Applies to state and municipal employees only.) 7. Any claim under Section 31-290a. (For example, if you were laid off or terminated due to this workers' compensation claim.) However, you will continue to be eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation assuming you meet all eligibility requirements.
