Burden to Title 51 RCW funds—How does a self-insured employer obtain prior approval for a structured settlement agreement if the agreement will burden or impact any funds covered under Title 51 RCW?

(1) If a self-insured employer is considering subjecting a fund covered under Title 51 RCW to any responsibility or burden as a result of a structured settlement agreement, the self-insured employer will:
(a) Notify the department in writing and give the director or the director's designee at least thirty days to either approve or deny the request; and
(b) Provide the following information:
(i) A copy of the complete claim file(s) of the injured worker;
(ii) Any other information relevant to the proposed agreement; and
(iii) All terms of the structured settlement agreement, including an explanation of the anticipated impact on the fund(s).
(2) If settlement negotiations continue after the self-insured employer has notified the department of a structured settlement agreement that may impact any funds covered under Title 51 RCW, the self-insured employer will keep the department updated on all terms or information not previously provided.
