Current Bill Summary

SS/SCS/SB 668 - Under the act, all rights to unaccrued compensation for permanent total disability shall cease upon the death of the injured employee. Unpaid unaccrued compensation for permanent partial disability will continue to be paid to dependents.

Currently, an actuarial study is made of the second injury fund every three years to determine solvency. This act requires an annual study.

The Joint Committee on the Second Injury Fund is created to examine the second injury fund, including the legal defense and solvency of the fund.

This act contains an emergency clause.

This act is similar to SB 665 (2007) and SB 606 (2007).
