It is a request by the insurance company to cut off/supersede your indemnity (wage loss) benefits.
You may see a Supersedeas request when a Termination/Modification/Suspension Petition is filed against you. If you are not receiving wage loss benefits, then there is nothing to supersede so Supersedeas doesn’t apply.
Supersedeas is a really important matter if you are an injured worker and receiving wage loss checks. Why? Because if you lose the Supersedeas Decision, your checks will be reduced or stopped as the case proceeds. If you do not have a Certified Work Comp Specialist like myself, fighting for you, you are taking a big risk.
