Texas DWC Seeks Comments on Benefits Forms Changes
The Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is accepting public comments on revisions to two forms:
- DWC Form-046, Request to Accelerate Impairment Income Benefits. This form is necessary to allow injured employees with a hardship a way to request an acceleration of weekly impairment income benefits.
- DWC Form-047, Request to Advance Benefits. This form is necessary to allow injured employees with a financial hardship a way to request an advance of benefits.
The revised forms are not a formal rule proposal under the Administrative Procedures Act. DWC will not treat comments as formal public comments. However, DWC will consider any substantive comment before the revised forms are adopted. The proposed forms are on the TDI website.
