BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

New York bill would allow survivors to refile COVID death claims

NY capitol

New York lawmakers Wednesday introduced a bill that would allow survivors of those whose COVID-19 deaths were connected to work to refile workers compensation death benefits claims that were previously denied due to timing.

S.B. 7792, which was sent to the Senate Rules Committee, would allow the reopening of claims that were denied because they did not meet the provisions in current law that claims be filed within two years of the death and/or within 30 days of the injury.

If signed into law, the bill would immediately give families up to one year to refile claims.
