  • I have an open WC claim, but quit my job, can I still get benefits?

    I have an open WC claim, for carpul tunnel, but I quit my job about three weeks ago. Can I still get a WC benefit for this? I know they will take care of my carpul tunnel, but will I receive any benefit from this injury now that I am no longer working? This is in the state of California.

    Why did you quit your job? That can make a huge difference in whether you receive benefits.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

      I actually quit my job to open a day care with my daughter. I was having trouble with my carpul tunnel months before I quit my job. And I went to a private Dr. for this problem 6 months before I quit my job. So all is documented with the Dr.'s office. My daughter is totally running the day care. I am not.
      When my arm is better, I plan to get involved in the day care with her.
      I have an appt. with a "Nerve Specialist" later this week to see how much nerve damage has been done. My arm is numb 100 per cent of the time.
      I did tell my work when I gave notice that I was leaving to open a day care with my daughter.

        Since you left voluntarily and not due to your medical condition, then no, you wouldn't get TTD. Medicals could still be covered but time off would not.
