Workers Compensation Plan Payments
Employees covered by Workers Compensation are entitled to Workers Compensation benefits for lost income if they can't work because of a job-related injury. If a Manitoba resident’s job-related injury happened during a motor vehicle accident in Manitoba, the employee also qualifies for income replacement coverage and other benefits under PIPP. Employees, therefore, can choose between collecting benefits under the Workers Compensation Plan or PIPP.
Benefits under Workers Compensation and PIPP are not identical. It's in your interest to contact both the Workers Compensation Board and Manitoba Public Insurance to get information about the coverage to which you are entitled. You can then make a decision about which plan to receive benefits from.
