Changes to the Form 53 by the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission

| Jun 23, 2021 | Firm News

On June 22, 2021, the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission revised language on the Form 53 to match it to changes made on the Form 52 on April 20, 2021.  These changes clarify which Social Security numbers are for the deceased employee and for the beneficiary or dependent claiming workers’ compensation benefits on the employee’s behalf.

The changes are effective on June 22, 2021, and the Workers’ Compensation Commission will return all obsolete Form 53s after July 1, 2021.
