Advisory 98-07

NOTIFICATION OF NEW ACCELERATION AND ADVANCE FORMS

Effective September 25, 1998, the Commission has adopted revised versions of two forms: TWCC-46, Employee's Request for Acceleration of Impairment Income Benefits, and TWCC-47, Employee's Request for Payment of Advance Compensation.

The revised forms are available in English and Spanish consistent with the requirements of Texas Labor Code §409.013. The revisions will ensure that the required information to request an acceleration or an advance can be easily understood and readily completed by the injured employee. The revisions are also expected to facilitate processing by the reviewing authority.

The revised TWCC-46 is printed as a one-page form (form on front and calculation sheet on back). Please note the form is available in English (TWCC-46E) and Spanish (TWCC-46S). The calculation worksheet has been added to Form TWCC-46 for the reviewing authority to show the steps in determining accelerated payments.

The revised TWCC-47 is printed as a one-page form and is also available in English (TWCC-47E) and Spanish (TWCC-47S).

Existing stocks of the current forms may be used through November 15, 1998. The revised forms must be used effective November 16, 1998.

Adopted this 5th day of October, 1998
