Q. When is my first WC disability check due?

A. WC law requires the insurance company to pay you 66% of your pre injury gross wage for each week you are unable to work. The first check is due on the 14th day after the injury. No compensation is due for the first seven (7) days of lost time unless you are out of work over twenty-one (21) days. If you miss more than twenty-one (21) days of work, a check for the first week of missed work becomes due.
