Payment of compensation.

What are the requirements for payment of compensation? Every self-insurer must:
(1) Pay time-loss compensation in accordance with Title 51 RCW and the rules and regulations of the department.
(2) Provide to workers a statement of benefits with each time-loss payment, to include the type of benefit paid and the period paid with from and to dates. If authorized by the worker, an electronic statement may be provided. In addition, provide to workers a statement of benefits with payments for reimbursements to workers.
(3) When payable, time-loss must continue at regular semi-monthly or bi-weekly intervals. When making an initial payment, an employer may adjust the date for payment of time-loss to align with a worker's normal date for payment of wages; however, the payment must be made within ten days of the entitlement period.
