Too Old to Get Workers Compensation
Washington's Governor, Chris Gregorine has proposed legislation to retire older totally disabled workers from the state's workers' compensation system. About 8% of the state's totally disabled workers would have the option of receiving a lump sum benefit to opt out of the system of periodic benefits. The senior beneficiaries amount to 85% of the present systems' cost and amount to only 8% of the total beneficiaries.
