Far too often, Pennsylvania workers who get hurt on the job find out that their employers do not carry workers' compensation insurance. To protect against this, in 2006, Pennsylvania lawmakers created the Uninsured Employers Guaranty Fund ("UEGF") to help these injured workers with payment of wage loss and medical benefits. Unfortunately, the UEGF was not properly funded when it was created, and, as a result, payment of the much-needed benefits have been delayed or never paid.Senate Bill 676, a companion to the recently proposed reimplementation of Pennsylvania's Impairment Rating Evaluation (IRE) procedures, would increase funding to the UEGF by more than doubling the assessments paid by workers' compensation insurers. This provision would be a welcome change to the current state of affairs for injured workers, who, through no fault of their own, find themselves out of work and without payment of benefits-simply because their employers did not have workers' compensation insurance. In addition, these workers should not suffer because state lawmakers did not properly address funding for the UEGF.
