This Bill amends the Workers’ Compensation Act to

(a) require benefits paid to a worker injured prior to March 23, 1990 to continue for life instead of ceasing at age sixty-five;

(b) require the payment of earnings-replacement benefits to the earlier of the date the Workers’ Compensation Board determines the loss of earnings has ended and the date the worker dies instead of age sixty-five;

(c) require annuity payments to commence the date the worker retires from the workforce rather than age sixty-five;

(d) require survivor pensions be paid for life notwithstanding the date the worker dies as a result of a work injury; and

(e) require an employer to re-employ an injured worker until the date the worker retires from the workforce instead of age sixty-five.
