Connecticut: Repeal of Social Security Offset from Workers Comp Advances

As of May 17, the legislation (Public Act 06-84) in Connecticut to repeal the social security offset from workers' compensation benefits had passed both houses and had been trasmitted to the Secretary of State. See eaelier Aging Workforce News article. Opponents of the legislation have stated that "the cost of this proposal (SB-25) to Connecticut employers is expected to be $8 million in the first year alone, according to a recent impact statement issued by the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI). That increased cost would continue in future years."
