What’s a Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable?

by admin on March 14, 2012

A Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable (NTCP), under the PA Workers’ Compensation Act, is issued after an injury occurs at the workplace. More specifically, it is issued when the workers’ compensation insurance carrier needs more time to investigate the claim because they are unsure whether an injury occurred or if the potentially injured worker is actually disabled.

When a NTCP is filed, the insurance company starts issuing workers’ compensation benefit payments. However if further investigations take place, they could change their minds. A total of 90 days is given to the insurance company for investigation. The insurer has the option during those 90 days of changing their mind and stopping the payment of benefits.

They do this by filing a Notice of Denial and Notice Stopping Temporary Compensation Payable. If the worker who has been injured or disabled disagrees with the findings of the insurer, they can file a claim petition. If the insurer does not send a Notice of Denial and Notice Stopping Temporary Compensation within 90 days, the NTCP changes to a Notice of Compensation Payable, and the insurance company will continue to pay workers’ compensation.
