CAN I SETTLE MY ARIZONA SCHEDULED DISABILITY AWARD?

The answer to this question is "yes". There is a provision in the Arizona workers' compensation laws that says an injured worker can petition the Industrial Commission of Arizona to settle a permanent disability award that is being paid on a scheduled basis. What this means is an injured worker that has a knee injury, or an arm injury, or a hand injury, typically a single extremity injury, with a permanent disability may be able to obtain a lump sum settlement up to $25,000. Normally, due to that permanent disability, the injured worker is entitled to a payment of benefits over a period of months.

CAN I RECEIVE UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS AND WORKERS' COMPENSATION IN ARIZONA?

If you have an accepted workers' compensation case in Phoenix, and you are on a light duty status per your employer, you can file for unemployment benefits if you were terminated from your employment. However, keep in mind, any benefits you receive from unemployment will be deducted from your temporary partial disability benefits that you would be entitled to from workers' compensation.
