I received a letter from The State Compensation Insurance Fund of a notice regarding permanent disability benefits.
The State Comp. Ins. Fund, the claims administration for Interim (The company I was working for when I got injured) is handling your Workers compensation claim. This notice is to advise you of the status of permanent disability payments for your workers comp. injury of Jan. 1, 2005.
We have determined that your injury has resulted in 10% permanent disability, which is valued at 6,655.00, based on Dr. Fernandez's reports. Your weekly compensation rate is 220.00 based on your earning of 469.43 per week.
The payment in the amount of 3,953.48 was sent separately.
Benefits were paid to you from March 23, 2007 through September 9, 2007.
We have paid you the total amount of 3,953.48 in permanent disability benefits. This amount will be deducted from any award you may receive. This amount represents 100%% 0f the value of your permanent disability benefits. State Compensation Ins. Fund is withholding the remaining 12% or 798.60 to cover potential attorney fees.
Included in this amount is: Permanent disability lump sum(s) totally 500.00. The overpayment totally 3, 953. 48 for the following period(s) at the rate of 220.00 per week, and 9/9/07 (Partial day) of 27.77... We will assert credit for the overpayment against Permanent disability.
These benefits are ending because your permanent disability benefits has been pain in full, less for reasonable attorney fees.
What the HELL does the letter mean, please explain to me what this exactly mean, I think I am going crazy, and they are the ones to blame...
