The Department of Industrial Relations (www.dir.ca.gov) has announced the launching of the Return-to-Work Supplement Program for injured workers. As part of Senate Bill 863, a 120 million dollar fund was created to assist eligible injured workers. It is a quick way to receive an additional $5,000 for injured workers who have been unable to return to their job. The program was announced on 4/13/15.
Qualifying is easy. The Applicant must have a date of injury after 1/1/13 and have received a Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit (SJDB) voucher for their injury.
Applying for the $5,000 is easy too. The application is completely done online and detailed instructions can be found at: Return-to-Work Supplement Program (RTWSP)
