Extension of Washington Pension System Review

Project Dates

11/25/2009 - 06/30/2011


This project extended the work performed under a previous project that addressed the incidence of total and permanent disability pensions in the Washington workers’ compensation system. Researchers provided a literature review of studies that analyze worker outcomes after settlement agreements and a review of benefit structures in other disability systems that may offer ways to bridge the gap between permanent total and permanent partial disability awards in Washington.
