Temporary Worker’s Compensation Benefits in Iowa. A common question that an injured worker has is, will I get paid for the time that I am off of work due to an injury?
When you sustain a work related injury and are off of work with a doctor’s restriction, after three days, you are entitled to receive temporary benefits. These benefits are called healing period benefits and you are entitled to them until you are released by your physician to return to work. If you are off of work for more than fourteen days, the initial three days becomes due. If you are not receiving healing period benefits after a work related injury, contact our office. Iowa, attorney
