GSU staff rep Dale Markling recently assisted a member who was inquiring whether he was able to collect Worker’s Compensation benefits after age 65.
The current rules provide that if an injured worker is under 63 years of age when she/he becomes eligible for WCB benefits then she/he can collect until the age of 65. If the injured worker is age 63 or older when she/he becomes eligible, then she/he is allowed to collect WCB benefits for a maximum of two years.
