Florida Hurt at Work? Injured Workers Now Receive Checks on a Pre-Paid Credit Card

September 22, 2011

Effective June 17, 2011, Governor Rick Scott signed into law a bill that authorizes payment of workers' compensation lost wage benefits on a prepaid card under certain circumstances. The bill allows workers' compensation insurance companies to make payments of lost wages in the form of a pre-paid debit card. An injured worker choosing the pre-paid debit card, must be able to have at least one means of accessing weekly benefits without incurring fees and  cannot make purchases which will cause any fees to the financial institution issuing the card.
This means no more waiting at the mailbox for checks or endless phone calls and voice messages to adjusters tracking down your missing or late lost wages. We can help you obtain a pre-paid credit card just like a bank would issue a debit card.
