Have to pay back LTD from wc settlement?
Hi, I'm now p&s, and my employers atty want me to settle for 20k, closing medical and resigning from them. I do have an atty, and wc will pay back std for the past year, but I've also gotten about 17K in ltd benefits, do those have to come out of my settlement? My atty thinks it doesn't but I thought I read somewhere it did. I'm pretty sure they'll want to be paid back from someone, but have no lien against the settlement.
I don't plan on resigning as I want to keep my ltd(have ms and lyme), and don't plan on giving up medical either as the work injury has resulted in chronic neck/head pain. Just wondering about the paying back ltd issue.
