What is a Notice of Closure?
The Notice of Closure is the formal document that your employer’s insurance company will send you regarding the final status of your workers’ compensation claim. You will receive a Notice of Closure once your health care provider has declared you medically stationary. In addition, you will receive the notice if your work-related injury has healed or you fail to keep up with any required medical appointments.
The Notice of Closure will detail any prior medical and temporary disability benefits you received, as well as what permanent benefits you are entitled to going forward. If you disagree with the terms of the closing notice, you have 60 days to file an appeal with the Oregon Workers’ Compensation Division.
