Compensation Practice Directive: #C7-1 — Payment of Public Trustee and Committee Fees

Section 35(1) of the Workers Compensation Act provides that the Board may redirect compensation payments to another person whom the Board considers best to administer the payment when an injured worker is incapable of managing his or her financial affairs. Persons to whom compensation may be redirected include a private citizen, a trust company, or the Public Trustee. There are, however, no direct provisions in the Act regarding whether the Board can pay administrative fees to third parties when the Board redirects a worker’s benefits.
