National Workers’ Comp Adjuster Day – August 17, 2022

National Workers’ Comp Adjuster Day is observed on August 17. This is an official day dedicated to work comp adjusters. It is a day to commemorate the work of those who have a significant impact on the quality of life of people with disabilities and their families. Their job is incredibly difficult and usually thankless. It’s a day of celebration not only for work comp adjusters but also for those who appreciate and respect their profession.

There is no correct way of celebrating. However, making keepsakes, funny awards, and virtual postcards has become a tradition.

History of National Workers’ Comp Adjuster Day

If you are injured at work, your employer and their insurance company should intervene immediately to help you get the care you need and pay for your wages. The workers’ compensation claims adjuster is the person who helps facilitate and coordinate the claim of the injured employee. In other words, the workers’ comp adjuster is a claims specialist who works for an insurance company. One of their most important roles is to evaluate the claim and determine how much it will cost the insurance company. In most situations, they are under tremendous pressure to reduce the cost of the claim as much as possible.

The adjuster’s job duties often include: analyzing employees’ claims for compensation, reviewing documentation, and authorizing payments. When workers are injured at work or ill due to working conditions, they can apply for compensation for medical bills and lost time or the pay for missed work. The adjuster must determine whether the compensation is acceptable and, if so, what the amount of it should be. The sooner an employee can return to work, the less compensation they will have to pay. As a result, the insurance company will be interested in the employee recovering quickly so that their life returns to normal as soon as possible.

National Workers’ Comp Adjuster Day was created to mark the day for these unsung heroes who make important decisions that ultimately improve the quality of life of people with disabilities but never receive recognition for their commitment to the well-being of affected workers and their families.
