Will Workers' Compensation Pay If I Quit?
If I quit from my job, do I still receive workers’ comp benefits?
Yes, when it is during the time of the incapacity, however ask a lawyer before taking any decision.
Factors Like Time of Quitting Could Affect The Result
The act of quitting your job does not necessarily have any effect on your right to receive workers’ compensation benefits in Rhode Island, but you absolutely should talk to your lawyer before making a decision like that, as depending on the timing and other factors, there could be issues that come up as a result.
Benefits Keep For The Time Of Incapacity
Generally speaking, however, if you are already receiving worker’s compensation benefits for a recognized claim/injury and quit your job, you may continue to receive it until such time as your incapacity to do that job (even though you no longer have it) ends.
