Q
Can I get an advance on NC workers’ comp benefits for total disability?

A

No. An employer is only required to pay for total disability benefits on a weekly basis. There are no circumstances under which these payments are required to be paid in advance.

However, if a “clincher agreement” is made, the employer will voluntarily make advance payments. In all other situations, the disabled employee must accept benefits on a weekly basis.
