Making Sense of Dollars Spent: The Impact of Accurate Wage Data on Your Claims Cost - August 6, 2019 | 1:00pm CST

Presenters: Will Scheffler, Director of Claims and Erica Janssen, VP of Claims Policy Management - The American Equity Underwriters, Inc.

Nearly half of workers' compensation claims costs represent indemnity - replacement of income for time unable to work, loss of income due to restrictions, awards for permanent injuries and settlements.  How much is paid for these benefits is driven by the injured worker’s pre-injury Average Weekly Wage. 

In this webinar, AEU’s Director of Claims, Will Scheffler, and VP of Claims Policy Management, Erica Janssen will discuss the importance of gathering accurate wage data and show how claims handlers use this information.  Further, they will explain the benefits afforded to injured workers under the Longshore Act.

 

By attending this webinar you will:

Understand how the employer can assist by providing the most accurate wage information

Understand why Claims Specialists asks for certain employment details

Gain a better appreciation for the indemnity costs associated with claims and how the employer can help reduce these exposures

 

Who should attend:

Human resource and payroll personnel, individuals involved with return to work decisions, and insurance buyers
